Evaluation of Surface Roughness of Metal and Alloy Material

Turning clearance angle is changed machining characteristics. In this study, the experiments start from choosing two workpiece materials that are machine structural carbon steel, chrome-molyb- denum steel. Then, the experiments show specifically how features of selected materials changed when they were processed with machining operation. In order to find the surface roughness of workpiece materials, the workpiece materials which have higher tensile strength showed much better value of surface roughness in a surface roughness tester. Moreover, process feed rate was compared between 0.05 mm/rev and 0.10 mm/rev. When process feed rate was 0.05 mm/rev, surface roughness has superior results without reference to the quality of the materials.
