Some Studies on Reduction of Ovality in Turned Component-Case study

Nilesh Dhirajlal Ghetiya


In the competitive market and globalization phase, industries are required to manufacture good quality machine tools with optimized performance at the moderate cost. Moreover, the industries are facing competition internationally due to worldwide globalization of business. This work aims to reduce the error called ovality in the turned work piece. This work piece is a clutch component used for the clutch assembly. For the clutch to work perfectly, it is required for its component to be precise and error free. The machining parameters like cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut are taken as input parameters and the ovality as output response. Response surface methodology is used for the optimization of process parameters. The most significant process parameter causing the ovality has been found. The other attempts like balancing of the work piece and radiography of the work piece is done to solve the problem which is causing the ovality. The centrifugal force analysis of the component is carried out using finite element analysis.
