Effects of process parameters on vibration frequency of Perspex round plastic bars was investigated experimentally under clamped - free (C - F) boundary condition during turning operation. Mathematical models were developed using Taguchi L9 orthogonal array design. Spindle speed (V), feed rate (f), and depth of cut (d) were selected as input variables in order to predict the effects of vibration frequency on the work-piece. Nine samples were run in a CNC lathe machine, and each of the experimental result was measured using DTO 32105 frequency analyser and a MXC-1600 digital frequency counter. A minimum vibration frequency of 104.8 Hz was obtained at a cutting speed of 320 m/min, feed rate 0.05 min/rev and at a depth of cut of 0.5 mm. The mathematical model developed shows the accuracy of predicting the vibration frequency to be 99.5% and the various combinations of parameters that results in the minimum vibration frequency were determined. Obtained optimum input parameters for vibration frequency indicated that production operations of Perspex round plastic bars could be enhance
