OHNS steel is a widely preferred material for manufacturing of Die blocks, fasteners, automotive components and cutting tools. Metal removal rate is an important performance factor to be considered in grinding process. Research activities that include experimental work and statistical analysis help in improving quality standards of manufacturing of components. Surface quality of OHNS steel after cylindrical grinding process is proposed to be studied in this experimental work using L9 orthogonal array selected for three levels and three input parameters. The inputs parameters are considered in this Experimental study are work speed, depth of cut and number of passes and response parameter is metal removal rate (MRR) during cylindrical grinding process. Higher metal removal rate is the main objectives of this machining process. The different machining parameters of OHNS steel of cylindrical grinding process are optimized by Signal to noise ratio and analyzed by Analysis of variance (ANOVA’s).
