Cylindrical grinding is a metal removing process which is used extensively in the finishing operation. Surface finish is an important output parameter in the manufacturing processes with respect to quality. The various process parameters of a cylindrical grinding machine include depth of cut, material hardness, work piece speed, grinding wheel grain size, and grinding wheel speed. The input process parameters considered are material hardness, work piece speed and depth of cut. The main objective is to predict the surface roughness and achieve optimal operating process parameters. In this study, the Taguchi method that is a powerful tool to design optimization for quality is used to find the optimum surface roughness in grinding operations. Investigate the surface-roughness characteristics of mild steel alloys using grinding wheels. Through this study, not only can the optimum surface roughness for grinding operations be obtained, but the main grinding parameters affecting the performance of grinding operations can also be found. Experimental results are provided to confirm the effectiveness of this approach.
