CNC Machine


now a day’s machining is done through various automated machines. One of the widely used machines is CNC. Even though the automated machines are used, the quality of the work is determined by parameters used. The cutting parameters of the CNC machine determine the productivity, surface finish, machining time and other qualities of the product. This study involves the optimization of those cutting parameters. In order to get optimized CNC parameters for a specific tool-work combination, Firefly Algorithm (FA) is used to compute the best parameters based on the experiments conducted on a CNC Turning center. The three cutting parameters are cutting speed (V), feed (f), and depth of cut (d). The practical constraints have been considered during both practical and experimental approaches. The result reveals that FA is very well suited in solving parameters selection problems.
