The present work focuses on optimizing the newly designed ball burning tool using Taguchi analysis method experiment on traditional lathe machine with process parameters for burning. The test piece and ball materials used are Aluminum Alloy 5083 with different percentages of zirconium and high carbon chromium with 6 mm diameter. The levels of parameters of the input process parameters are selected on the basis of one element at a time of the experiment: burning feed, burning rate, and material composition. The response parameters are hardness and roughness of the surface. The main objective of this study is to compare surface roughness and surface hardness values on a workpiece of 100% aluminum alloy and aluminum (99%, 98%) with zirconium (+1%, +2%).
