In the traditional titanium alloy process the cutting efficiency is lower, this is because both cutting speed and tool life are lower and machine power is not enough. The paper describes the experiment on end milling titanium alloy BT20. The experiments show that the cutting speed can be increased evidently when adopting advanced tool material, optimizing geometric parameters and using larger power machine, premising necessary tool life.
