The presented paper experimentally studies the machining of American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) D2 steel as a frequently used material in die and mold making industry. Several experimentations have been carried out using different cutting conditions such as feed rate, depth of cut, and machining time. The consequent effects of these parameters on the tool and workpiece in terms of tool wear, cutting forces and power, and workpiece surface integrity (surface roughness) have been recorded to investigate the machinability of D2 steel material. The results mainly reveal that depth of cut, feed rate, and machining time are the most dominant parameters that play an important role in machinability characteristics of D2 steels.
