Cylindrical grinding is one of the important metal cutting processes used extensively in the finishing operations. Surface finish is the important output responses in the production with respect to quantity and quality respectively. The Experiments are conducted on universal tool and cutter grinding machine with L9 Orthogonal array with input machining variables as work speed, grinding wheel grades and hardness of material. The developed model can be used by the different manufacturing firms to select right combination of machining parameters to achieve an optimal surface roughness (Ra).The results reveals surface roughness (Ra).The predicted optimal values for Ra for Cylindrical grinding process is 1.07 Ra respectively. The results are further confirmed by conducting confirmation experiments.
