depth of cut. The finishing tool head features radial and axial stepped cutting edges for high-quality surface finishes.
Cutting conditions were changed during testing in terms of cutting speed, workpiece speed, feed rate, depth of cut and direction of rotation.
Deepak and Rajendra [1] carried out an analysis of the effect of the process parameters, such us feed rate, cutting speed, and depth of cut, on machined product surface roughness.
The results show that the uncoated ceramic tool is suitable in decreasing the cutting forces strongly influenced by the depth of cut. A lot of investigations have been performed to research the performance of carbide and ceramics tools in the machining of several hardened materials due to higher cost of cubic boron nitride.
The important parameters that affect the machining parameters are spindle speed, feed rate, depth of cut, cutting conditions and constituents.
Also, this process is affected by other factors such as speed and depth of cut, feed rate, cutting tool geometric, and material properties [1].
Minimum surface roughness is observed on 1000 RPM keeping feed rate and depth of cut as constant.
The stability lobe separates the parameter domains of the spindle speed and depth of cut into parts corresponding to the stable region (free of chatter) and the unstable region (chatter).
From the S/N ratio analysis the optimum milling operation for surface roughness is [R.sub.a] 3 [The most effective cutting parameters in reducing surface roughness] is cutting speed at 1000 rpm (Level 2), Feed rate at 200mm/min (Level 1) and Depth of cut at 1.0mm (level 1) which has shown in Figure 3(c).
Changing the depth of cut on a circular saw requires you to loosen a lever and move the shoe up or down.
[1], the surface roughness has been controlled with moderate cutting speed, low feed and moderate depth of cut while machining of GFRP with carbide K-20 tool.
