Meso/micro scale milling is a direct operation to manufacture miniature parts. In this paper, experimental and modelling studies on meso/micro-milling of AL 2024-T6 aluminum and AISI 4340 steel are presented. Experiments include dynamic force measurements. The finite element modelling of meso/micro-milling is also conducted to predict chip formation and temperature fields. Size effects and minimum chip thickness related to edge radius and chip load on the workpiece deformations are also investigated. Process simulations are validated for force predictions.
