Abstract

Surface roughness, normally defined by the Ra and Rt/Rmax parameters, is an important topic in the manufacturing engineering, for controlling produced components. This paper presents a study of the influence of cutting parameters on surface roughness in turning of glass‐fibre‐reinforced plastics (GFRPs). A plan of experiments was performed on controlled machining with cutting parameters prefixed in workpiece. A statistical technique, using orthogonal arrays and analysis of variance, has been employed to investigate the influence of cutting parameters on surface roughness in turning GFRPs tubes using polycrystalline diamond cutting tools. The objective was to obtain the contribution percentages of the cutting parameters (cutting velocity and feed rate) on the surface roughness in GFRPs workpiece.
