Abstract

The selection of the optimal external cylindrical grinding conditions importantly contributes to increase of productivity and quality of the products. The external cylindrical grinding is a method of finishing machine elements surface with an indeterminate blade shape. External cylindrical grinding can process surfaces that require high gloss and precision, although it can also be used to remove large surplus stock. Therefore, multi objective optimization for the external cylindrical grinding process is a problem with high complexity. In this study, an experimental study was performed to improve the productivity and quality of grinding process. By using the experimental date, the surface roughness, cutting force, and vibrations were modeled. To achieve the minimum value of surface roughness and maximum value of material removal rate, the optimal values of external cylindrical grinding conditions were determined by using the combination of Genetic Algorithms (GAs) and weighting method. The optimum values of surface roughness and material removal rate are 0.510 μm and 5.906 mm2/s, respectively. The obtained optimal values of cutting parameters were a feed rate of 0.3 mm/rev, a workpiece speed of 188.1 rpm, a cutting depth of 0.015 mm, and a workpiece Rockwell hardness of 54.78 HRC. The optimal values of cutting parameters, and workpiece hardness were successfully verified by comparing of experimental and predicted results. The approach method of this study can be applied in industrial machining to improve the productivity and quality of the products in external cylindrical grinding process of the T1 tool steel
