Abstract

Abrasive water jet machining is a non-traditional machining process introduced recently to manufacturing industry. Abrasive water jet cutting of material involves the effect of a high pressure velocity jet of water with entrained abrasive particles on tomaterial to be cut. This technology is widely used in industry for cutting difficult-to-machine materials, milling slots, polishing hard materials, cleaning contaminated surfaces, etc. The experimental study was conducted on pure aluminum. This paper presents optimization of the abrasive water jet machining process based on material removal rate using Taguchi method. The various process parameters are pressure, stand off distance, traverse speed, and abrasive flow rate. The Taguchi method will be used for designing the experiment and optimum result can be achieved through ANOVA and Compare it With Minitab 16 at the end.
