Abstract

Micro-milling is a precision machiningtechnique that holds a pivotal role in the manufacturing of miniaturised componentsanddevices across various sectors, including aerospace, medical, aeronautical, etc. This review article provides a comprehensive overview of the micro-milling process, encompassing the latest advancements, challenges and applications. A detailed analysis of key aspects, including cutting conditions, cutting tools, process parameters and emerging trends in micro-milling, was carried out over the past 18 years. Investigation into the critical process parameters governingthe micro-milling operation, encompassing spindle speed, feed rate, depth of cut, and toolpath strategies, was executed.The effects of material properties and workpiece fixturing on the quality and accuracy of micro-machined parts was also explored. Special attention has been given to the impact of environmental factors, such as temperature control and lubrication, on process stability and part quality.
