Milling is the one of most common cutting operations in industry. Interrupted nature of the milling process allows use of higher speeds which in turn improves productivity. Cutting temperature is one of the key factors to be investigated in process optimization. In milling, cutting temperature analysis is harder compared to turning due to experimentation difficulties and transient characteristics. In this study, a new experimental technique is proposed to measure the face milling temperatures which are used to verify the analytical model developed. Results indicate a good agreement between the model predictions and dry cutting experiments at different cutting speeds. (C) 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
