Abstract: In this research a detailed study is carried out on machining parameters for turning operation on aluminium 7075 with high-speed steel. This grade of aluminium is known for its applications in aerospace industry and research about its machining parameters will lead to more developments in the field of production. Aim of this work is to optimize turning operation. Machining parameters viz. speed, feed and depth of cut are taken as input parameters. Material removal rate (MRR), tool wear (TWR), surface roughness (SR) are taken as output parameters and the set of optimized parameters means reduction in total production cost. The experiments are planned using Taguchi’s L9 orthogonal array. Grey relational analysis (GRA) is used for multi objective optimization using grey relational grades. Application of analysis of variance (ANOVA) helps in the identification of most prominent parameters among speed, feed and depth of cut.
