In multipass turning of flexible workpieces, the selection of the sequence of cutting passes is as important as the selection of machining parameters (depth of cut, feed rate, and cutting speed). This is because the varying workpiece diameter has an effect on the optimization objective function and constraints. In general, there should be a total of five decision variables in multipass turning optimization problems, that is, the three fundamental machining parameters, the number of cutting… CONTINUE READING
