An artificial neural network (ANN) model was developed for the analysis and prediction of the relationship between cutting and process parameters during high-speed turning of nickel -based, UDIMET720, alloy. The input parameters of the ANN model are the cutting parameters: Speed, feed rate, depth of cut, cutting time and coolant pressure. The output parameters of the model are seven process parameters measured during the machining trials, namely tangential force (cutting force, Fz), axial force

The model consists of a three layerd feedforward backpropagation neural network. The network is trained with pairs of inputs/outputs datasets generated when machining UDIMET 720 alloy with triple (TiCN/Al2o3/TiN) PVD-coated carbide (K 10) inserts with ISO designation CNMG 120412. A very good performance of the neural network, in terms of agreement with experimental data, was achieved. The model can be used for the analysis and prediction of the complex relationship between cutting conditions and the process parameters in metal-cutting operations and for the optimization of the cutting process for efficient and economic production.
