Abstract: CNC Pocket Milling is the commonly employed machining process in molding, aircraft building, and shipbuilding industries. Surface integrity is one of the main quality parameters considered to accept the component. In the present work, an attempt is made to optimize the cutting factors in pocket milling of UNS A96082 using two different tool path strategies to get a better surface finish. Speed, Feed and Step over are considered as influencing parameters in the present study for measuring surface roughness. Taguchi experimental design method is employed to conduct experiments and to optimize the cutting parameters. It is observed that the results obtained from confirmation experiments also show nearer value for predicted surface roughness.
Keywords: Optimization, pocket milling, Taguchi method, Tool Path strategy, UNS A96082.
