Optimization of Endmill Cutting Conditions for Nickel-Based Super Alloys

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.12 No.2

Summary

Parameter design based on the Taguchi Method was applied to the endmill cutting process for nickel-based super alloys rather than the conventional sequential methods or experimental design methods in order to optimize the cutting conditions.
“Machining transferability”, which compares the preset removal volume to the actual removed volume, was selected as the evaluation characteristic used in this method.
As a result, if an alloy is cut with the optimized conditions obtained with parameter design, an approximately 60% reduction in variations in machining transferability, in terms of the standard deviation, can be achieved as compared to the conventional conditions.
