Weight of an automobile and its parts are an important parameter regarding its performance and efficiency. As the weight of vehicle increases its fuel efficiency and performance decreases. To enhance the performance of an automobile, the automobile parts should be lighter in weight and also possess the required strength. So, Weight reduction of engine mounting brackets can be achieved by changing the material of brackets and also by optimizing the material removal for hole manufacturing on the brackets. Optimization of material removal rate is done by applying Taguchi method. Under this project, study of optimization of material removal rate will be done by using Taguchi method and signal-to-noise ratio graph will be obtained with the help of Minitab Software. In this automotive era the need for light weight structural materials is increasing as there is a more focus on fuel consumption reduction and improvement in decreasing the emission. The magnitude of production volumes has traditionally placed severe requirements on the robustness of process used in the manufacturing. The manufacturers have strong importance on the cost has the demand for the component to improve the material performance and to deliver these materials at low cost is the requirement. The result & conclusion will be drawn and suitable future scope will be suggested.
