Surface Roughness Model for end Milling Metal Matrix Composite (A1/SiC)
This paper describes a study of the development of surface roughness models for end milling Metal Matrix Composite (A1/15% Vf.SiC) using uncoated tungsten carbide inserts. The mathematical prediction models for surface roughness have been developed in terms of cutting speed, feed and axial depth of cut. The effect of these parameters on surface roughness have been investigated using response surface methodology (RSM). Response surface contours were constructed by a computer and used for determining the optimum cutting conditions for a required surface roughness.
