The effect of Process Parameters on Material Removal Rate in Drilling of Al 6061-SiC composite

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


This study investigates the effect of process parameters such as diameter of drill, cutting velocity, feed rate and coolant supply on material removal rate while drilling of Al-SiC composite. Sample specimens are prepared by stir-casting method and experiments are designed using Taguchi's L9 orthogonal array. Response data is analysed using S/N ratio and significant process parameters are identified using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). Study shows that drill diameter, followed by feed rate are found to be the most significant factors which influence MRR.
