Effect of Surface Roughness on Jute Fiber Reinforced Polyester Composite using AWJM

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Roughness plays an important role in identifying how the real object interacts with the surrounding. The rough surface gets wear easily, so therefore the object manufacturing sector needs to get concentrate in it. Nowadays composite plays an important role as leading components with some good properties. So, the composite manufacturer needs to get more concentration on cutting technology. Other cutting technology, the tool wear is the most important drawbacks need to be considered. There is

In this work we use Abrasive water jet machine (AWJM) because it is one of the most used non-traditional machining process, which has no cutting tool and the mixture of abrasive particle of garnet 80 mesh and high-pressure water from the nozzle is used to cut the workpiece with some following parameters like stand-off distance (Sd), feed rate (Vf) and water pressure (P). The jute fiber reinforced polyester composite (JF/UPR) fabricated by compression moulding which is used for measuring surface roughness (Ra) and also to find the minimum Ra.
