Effect of Cutting Parameters on the Surface Roughness of MWCNT Reinforced Epoxy Composite Using CNC End-Milling Process

G. Harii Krishna Rao | M. N. M Ansari [2] | Shahida Begum

Abstract: This research reports the study on effect of cutting parameters using CNC Milling to obtain quality surface finish that is specified by customer for machined parts. In this research, an attempt has been made to study the effects of cutting parameter that influence the surface roughness quality. The depth of cut is the most dominant factor of this study. The medium significant factor is feed rate and followed by spindle speed. The most important interactions, that effect surface roughness of machined surfaces, were between the feed rate and depth of cut for this particular type of MWCNT Epoxy composite. This research becomes part of major contribution for the manufacturing industry especially machining of MWCNT/epoxy composite materials using CNC milling process. Interestingly, this project can be regarded as an exclusive work because the information's and solutions achieved at the end of this research was significant and can be implemented in future demanding CNC industries especially in carbon nanotube/epoxy composites applications and alsoas a reference to future researchers.
