hard turning, surface integrity, design of experiment


Surface integrity plays a determinant role in the functional requirement of precision machined parts. In the automotive industry billions of components are manufactured by using case hardened steels. In this study some surface integrity elements, such as surface roughness or residual stress are analyzed based on systematic machining experimental plan to optimize the applied cutting parameters. Recommendations are made for these parameters based on the measurement data and some widely used functional requirements.
