Influence of cutting parameters causing variation of surface roughness and chip characteristics of Mg AZ31B Alloy
Keywords:Machining, Surface roughness, Optimum parameters, Chip categorization
This study aims to investigate the machining of magnesium-based alloy (AZ31B) through experiment as well as analysis based on the turning process with different machining parameters— cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut. In addition, micro scale studies were performed to determine the surface roughness. The relation between the cutting parameters with the surface roughness can be used to determine the optimal cutting conditions of this material for certain processes. The chips produced under these circumstances are categorized by their shape. These various factors have been considered to find out the optimal cutting condition for the suitable surface roughness of this material. The results show, the dominant parameter for cutting this material is feed rate which drastically influences the roughness of the surface of the material.
