Due to their exceptional mechanical qualities, nickel-based superalloys are among the ultimate popular materials utilised in the production of aircraft components. Within the family of superalloys, Nimonic C-263 is becoming a challenging material that can be used for manufacturing mechanical components, making it difficult to achieve the appropriate surface roughness as an effect of the alloy's high potential of work hardening, low conductivity of heat, and hot hardness. It is indirect contrast to the fabrication of aeroplane components, which calls for extremely precise machining components to eliminate wastage and scrapping. The current research objective is to ascertain how the tool life is affected by machining parameters during the turning process. Using Titanium Aluminium Nitride, carbide inserts coated with TiAlN to machine Nimonic C-263 alloy in a zero-lubrication cutting condition. Researchers have also evaluated the feed rate, cutting speed, and depth effects on the insert life. The interactions between the output variable and machining parameters investigate using the Box-Behnken technique in Response Surface Methodology (RSM). The agreement between the generated prediction model output and the corresponding variable was accessed using the Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The findings indicate excellent suitability between the observed and predicted tool life values of 6.9% percentage error against the generated mathematical models.
