Incoloy 800H is a nickel (Ni)-iron (Fe)-chromium (Cr) alloys with good strength at high-temperature exposure (810°C) and outstanding resistance to oxidation, carburization and other types of high-temperature corrosion. But, it is very difficult to turn and hence the present work is carried out and investigated. In this paper, the effect of cutting parameter and Al2O3 Nano-fluid suspension regarding varying concentration in coconut oil on the force, roughness and tool wear are studied. The CNC experiments are planned according to L9 Taguchi design and turned using AlTiN coated carbide tool inserts. 3D factor effect plots, 1D plots, Analysis of variance (ANOVA) and response optimizer in desirability analysis are applied in the present study. From the empirical research, 0.25% Al2O3 Nano-fluid in coconut oil along with speed of 100 m/min and 0.14 mm/rev feed has proved the better machining performance to minimize the force, roughness and tool wear. © 2019 The Authors.
