The influence of the machining parameters and approach angle of carbide inserts over tool wear at the flank face, surface roughness and material removal rate are investigated experimentally in this work. The optimum conditions are found out by using a hybrid grey-fuzzy algorithm. The grey relational analysis and fuzzy logic technique are coupled to obtain a grey-fuzzy grade for evaluating multi-characteristics output from the grey relational coefficient of each response. The experiments were designed using Taguchi's design of experiments; a L9 (34) orthogonal array was selected for four parameters varied through three levels. Fuzzy-based reasoning was integrated using the grey approach to reduce the degree of uncertainty. The optimal setting was found out by a response table and the influences of input parameters on the output were determined by Analysis of variance. With the help of this hybrid technique the performance characteristics of the machining process were improved, which is proved by the results from the confirmation experiment.
