Abstract: The objective of this study is to produce the best possible grinding spindle using hardened EN 353 steel through the cylindrical grinding process. Primarily the EN 353 steel specimens are cut according to the product specification and subjected to rough machining. Then the steel specimens are subjected to a heat-treatment process to enhance the mechanical property hardness so that the specimen becomes wear-resistant. The experimental runs are planned based on Taguchi’s L27(37) array and conducted in a cylindrical grinding machine (Toyoda G32 cylindrical grinding machine). The surface roughness of the machined specimens is measured using a calibrated surface roughness tester. A prediction model is created through regression analysis for the outcome. The significance of the selected grinding factors and their levels on surface roughness is found by analysis of variance (ANOVA) and F-test and finally, a affirmation test is conducted to confirm the optimum factors.
