Prediction of Surface Roughness in High Speed Milling Process Using the Artificial Neural Networks
The objective of this research was to apply the artificial neural network algorithm to predict the surface roughness in high speed milling operation. Tool length, feed rate, spindle speed, cutting path interval and run-out were used as five input neurons; and artificial neural networks model based on back-propagation algorithm was developed to predict the output neuron-surface roughness. A series of experiments was performed, and the results were estimated. The experimental results showed that the applied artificial neural network surface roughness prediction gave good accuracy in predicting the surface roughness under a variety of combinations of cutting conditions.
