Selection of Non-Conventional Machining Process Considering Machining Processes by using Additive Ratio Assessment - Approach

Authors(1) :-M. Mahalingam

Many of the recent developments in the Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering industries are partly due to the increasing use of difficult to machine materials. Many of these materials also find application in other industries owing to their high strength- to weight ratio, hardness and heat resisting qualities. Non-traditional machining (NTM) processes have been developed over the past few decades. These processes are capable of generating intricate and complex shapes with high degree of accuracy, close dimensional tolerance and better surface finish. The right choice of the most appropriate NTMP is critical to the success and competitiveness of a manufacturing company. Selection of the most appropriate NTMP for a given machining application can be viewed as a multi criteria decision making process. This paper focuses on additive ratio assessment (ARAS)-based method dealing for the selection non-conventional machining processes for the machining of complex shapes. A complete list of all the non-conventional machining process from the best to the worst is obtained, taking into account multi-conflicting machining of various attributes. To obtained complete ranking performance of the non-conventional process.
