In the present study, micro-milling of aluminium 6061 alloy and copper was undertaken. TiAlN coated two-flute flat end milling cutters of 0.5 mm diameter were used for conducting micro-channel milling experiments with minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) as the cutting environment. The effect of process parameters namely cutting velocity ( v c ) and feed per flute ( f z ) on the cutting forces, surface roughness and burr width are reported. RMS values of longitudinal feed force ( F X ), transverse cutting force ( F Y ) and vertical thrust force ( F Z ) were measured and the maximum values for Al 6061 are 0.33 N, 0.16 N and 0.21 N respectively, and the same for copper are measured to be 0.11 N, 0.17 N and 0.22 N respectively. Average surface roughness along the milling direction ( R a ) at the bottom surface of the micro-channel was measured. Smoother surfaces were generated at lower feed per flute in both the materials. R a is found to be varying from 28.2 nm to 86.9 nm for Al 6061, and for copper, the range is from 4.9 nm to 32.7 nm. SEM images of the micro-channels were analysed and top burr width was measured in both up-milling and down-milling directions. Higher feed per flute produced smaller burrs in both up-milling and down-milling directions. Maximum burr width for Al 6061 is measured to be 12.86 μm and 15.28 μm in up-milling and down-milling direction respectively, and for copper, the same are measured to be 12.84 μm and 20.46 μm respectively.
