The report is going to discuss the experimental investigation of the parameters that effects the D2 Hardened steel during the Face Milling process. The parameters that are going to be discussed here are the Speed, Feed rate and Depth of Cut. In addition, Surface Roughness and Chips Morphology is also going to be studied and discussed in this report. D2 steels are particularly used in long run applications such as the forming dies or thread rolling dies so it becomes essential to study and optimise the parameters that are included in the Face Milling process. The properties of D2 steel is also been taken into concern before the machining process. The main focus of the modern machining industries are on achievement of high quality in terms of the Surface Roughness and to reduce the irregularities on the surface of the material. The Research problem is to find the optimum combination of the drilling variables in order to get the desired shape and surface. The Graphs are plotted from the derived experimental values of surface roughness after each trials. The optimization study has been successfully completed upon its objectives, where the main parameters that affect the mechanical properties of Face Milling operation were identified among the parameters chosen.
