The machining processes simulation are commonly used by manufacturing industries in order to produce high quality and very complex products in a short time. These machining processes simulation include large number of input parameters which may affect the cost and quality of the products. Selection of optimum machining parameters in such machining processes is very important to satisfy all the conflicting objectives of the process. There are two options to choose the optimal cutting parameters for a given economic objective. The first one is concerned with the need of a machine expert that manually selects the machining parameters on the basis of its own experience and by means of a proper machining handbook. That way generates many uncertainties and drawbacks in terms of efficiency of solutions and time/cost requirements. As an alternative to the above mentioned approach, many research efforts have been made to state a comprehensive mathematical model of a turning process that, in practice, entails a set of cutting constraints to be handled. Machining optimization problems become tricky whenever a given objective function must be optimized with respect to a large number of constraints. This paperwork is focused about the generation of an automated optimization procedure, for turning processes of nickel superalloys, under certain process conditions. For the automated optimization procedure the response surface methodology (RSM) has been used to detect the influence of the process variables on its performances. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
