This paper presents an investigation on the optimisation and the effect of cutting parameters on multiple performance characteristics (work piece surface roughness, spindle load) obtained by turning operations. A CNMG 09 03 08-PF carbide insert as tool and the HCHC steel as work piece material were used in experiments. The work piece material was machined under different settings of feed rate, depth of cut, cutting speed on a CNC lathe model-TL1 (HAAS). The results showed that cutting speed and feed rate were the dominant variables on multiple cutting performance characteristics. An optimum parameter combination was obtained by using experimental analysis.
