Application of Axiomatic Design Principles for Process Planning in Milling
This study shows how to apply the principles of Axiomatic Design to develop a system for cutting parameter selection for milling-one of the widely used material removal processes. The attention is given on the industrial practices during the rough cuts so that the machinist can determine the optimal table feed and tool's rotary speed ensuring high productivity and longer tool life. It is found that a significant amount of sequential coupling dominates cutting parameter selection process. A prototype system has been developed to see the effectiveness of proposed approach.
