Comparative Study of Taguchi and Genetic Algorithm in Electric Discharge Machining Parameters on Titanium Alloy (Ti 6Al 4V)

K. Umanath


The aim of this work is to research the have an effect on of manner parameters and determine the top of the line system parameters in electric discharge machining (EDM) of Titanium alloy (Ti 6Al 4V) .The parameters taken into consideration are peak modern, pulse on time and pulse off time in which as the responses are material removal rate (MRR) and surface Roughness (SR). MITSUBISHI EA8 spark erosion machine is hired for this paintings and copper tungsten electrode of ∅14 mm is utilized in experimental trials. The experimental trials are carried out based totally on Taguchi L27 orthogonal array with 3 levels of every machining parameters. The signal to noise ratio, the evaluation of variance (ANOVA), regression analysis and Genetic algorithm are hired to locate the highest quality stages and to analyze the consequences of machining parameters on metal elimination charge and floor roughness. Confirmation tests with the most beneficial levels of machining parameters are completed which will illustrate the effectiveness of Taguchi and Genetic set of rules optimization approach. Assessment of Taguchi’s and Genetic set of rules had been employed to analyze the effective top quality fee.
