The study investigated the turning of C45 steel in a dry environment. The input parameters that were varied were cutting speed, feed, depth of cut, corner radius and insert type. The experimental investigations were carried out according to a custom experimental design using the D-optimality criterion. The measured output parameters were dimensional deviation, flank wear and surface roughness, while the material removal rate was calculated. A detailed analysis and evaluation of the effects of the input parameters on the output parameters was carried out. The model was diagnosed and appropriate regression equations was established. Based on the obtained regression equations, multi-objective optimisation was performed using particle swarm optimisation. The objective function was to simultaneously minimise dimensional deviation, flank wear and surface roughness and maximise material removal rate. The optimisation was carried out for different weighting coefficients of each output function for different production requirements. The obtained models and optimal values were verified by additional confirmation experiments.
