The basic endeavor in any production process is to produce an acceptable component at the minimum possible cost. In order to achieve this objective in metal cutting or metal machining, many attempts have been made in several different ways; such as optimizing the tool life in order to minimize the production cost, maximizing the production rate to reduce the production cost, etc. but no single effort has been found fully successful because of the numbers of complexities involved in the process. For example, if cutting speed is reduced in order to enhance the tool life, the metal removal rate is also reduced and therefore, the production cost increased. A similar effect is observed if the efforts have been made to increase tool life by reducing the feed rate and depth of cut. Against this, if the effort is made to increase the production rate or to reduce the machining time by substantially increasing the cutting speed, feed and depth of cut, the tool life shortens and therefore, tooling cost increases and so the total production cost is also increased. A balance is therefore required to be stuck and a reasonable cutting speed determined, corresponding to which an economical tool life will be ensured and an economical production will result. The present study introduces one such method of improving the production rate in turning operation.
