In order to break the bottleneck of low efficiency, bad quality following drilling alloy Ti6Al4V, the effect of cutting parameters on thrust force, drilling vibration, burr height and surface roughness was studied based on response surface method. The optimized parameters were obtained. Results showed that feed rate had significant effect on thrust force and little on drilling vibration, while cutting speed had significant effect on vibration and little on thrust force. It is also observed that surface roughness decreased with cutting speed increasing, as well as increased with feed rate increasing. In addition, microstructure on the drilled hole surface showed mobility along feeding direction. Grain refinement on the drilling hole surface became serious with the increase of cutting speed and feed rate.
