A Study on Optimum Condition of Centerless Grinding Machine for Ferrule Using Taguchi Method and Response Surface Method


Article Preview

The surface roughness in centerless grinding is mainly affected by the many process parameters. For decreasing the surface roughness, the control of grinding parameters is very important. This paper deal with the analysis of the process parameters such as height of centers, tilting angle of the regulating wheel, speed of the regulating wheel, developed based on Taguchi method and response surface method. The effect of grinding parameters on the surface roughness was evaluated the utilization of the response surface model was evaluated with constraints of the surface roughness.
