In this study, by using Taguchi method, the effects of milling type and cutting conditions on the cutting force were investigated. With four controllable factors-three levels (milling type, axial depth of cut, feedrate, and spindle speed), the most suitable orthogonal array L27 was performed with seven performance measurements that are maximum and minimum cutting forces in three directions (axial, feed, and normal). By ANOVA analysis with the assistance of Intercooled Stata 8.2TM software, the effects of milling type and cutting conditions on the cutting forces were analyzed and modeled. The most suitable regression of cutting forces was a quadratic regression with the confidence level of more than 97.35%. These models were verified by experiments with very promising results.
