design of experiments, roughness, straightness, tangential turning, waviness


Among the productivity-increasing high feed turning procedures, the tangential turning is studied in this paper. Our main focus was a preliminary analysis of the machined surface topography by the DoE method. To achieve this goal 2 kinds of cutting speed, feed and depth of cut were chosen as factors which are influence the surface topography, resulting in 8 experimental setups. After the cutting experiments 2D profile measurements and shape error measurements were done. In this paper the Ra, Rz parameters of the roughness profile, Wa, Wz parameters of the waviness profile and the straightness error were analysed in more depth. We determined their alteration as a function of the studied parameters and designated our further research directions.
