In the present study, an attempt has been made to evaluate the performance of multilayer coated carbide inserts during dry turning of hardened EN24 steel (47 HRC). The effect of machining parameters (depth of cut, feed and cutting speed) on surface roughness parameters (Ra and Rz) were investigated by applying ANOVA. The experiments were planned based on Taguchi’s L27 Orthogonal array design. Results showed that surface roughness parameters (Ra and Rz) are mainly influenced by feed and cutting speed, whereas depth of cut exhibits minimum influence on surface roughness (Rz) and neglegible influence in case of surface roughness (Ra). The experimental data were further anlyzed to predict the optimal range of surface roughness parameters (Ra and Rz). Finally, second order regression models were carried out to find out the relationship between the machining parameters and surface roughness parameters.
