PVC frame cutting process by guillotine is a common method that attracted attention of car parts and PVC decorating furniture producers. In this paper, the effects of main parameters such as cutting speed, lubricants and cutting frame holder pressure force on PVC frame section surface smoothness is investigated by experimental methods on a specified PVC frame sample and then by FEM simulation using ABAQUS 6.8 software. The results obtained by experimental methods and software simulation show intense effect of these parameters on the PVC frame section surface smoothness and cutting force. Finally, based on the experimental works, some solutions are suggested to improve the cutting quality.
