Stainless steel is a kind of difficult-to-machine material, and the work hardening in milling easily leads to high energy consumption and poor surface quality. Thus, the influence of machined surface hardness on energy consumption and surface quality cannot be ignored. To solve this problem, the prediction models for machine tool specific energy consumption and surface roughness are developed with tool wear and machined surface hardness considered firstly. Then, the validity of the models is

The results show that the prediction accuracy of the machine tool specific energy consumption model can reach 98.7%, and the roughness model can reach 96.8%. Later, according to the developed prediction models, the influence of milling parameters, surface hardness, and tool wear on the machine specific energy consumption and surface roughness is studied. Results show that in stainless steel milling, the most significant parameters for surface roughness is the machined surface hardness, while that for energy consumption is the feed per tooth. The machine specific energy consumption increases linearly with the increase of the tool wear and the machined surface hardness gradually. The proposed models are helpful to optimize the process parameters for high efficiency and high quality machining of stainless steel.
