Taguchi Method Based Experiments of Titanium TC11 Flank Milling Parameters
Taguchi design methodology is applied to experiments of flank mill machining parameters of titanium alloy TC11 (Ti6.5A13.5Mo2Zr0.35Si) in conventional and high speed regimes. This study includes three factors, cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut, about two types of tools. Experimental runs are conducted using an orthogonal array of L9(33), with measurement of cutting force, cutting temperature and surface roughness. The analysis of result shows that the factors combination for good surface roughness, low cutting temperature and low resultant cutting force are high cutting speed, low feed rate and low depth of cut.
