A common method to manufacture parts to a specific dimension involves the removal of excess material by machining operation with the help of cutting tool. Turning process is the one of the methods to remove material from cylindrical and non-cylindrical parts. In this work the relation between change in hardness caused on the material surface due the turning operation with respect to different machining parameters like spindle speed, feed and depth of cut have been investigated. Taguchi method has been used to plan the experiments and EN 8 metal selected as a work piece and coated carbide tool as a tool material in this work and hardness after turning has been measured on Rockwell scale. The obtained experimental data has been analyzed using signal to noise and. The main effects have been calculated and percentage contribution of various process parameters affecting hardness also determined.
