Titanium alloys are labeled as difficult to materials because of their low machinability rating. This paper presents an experimental study of machining Ti-6Al-4V under turning operation. All machining tests were conducted under dry, mist and flood cooling approaches by using a TiAlN coated carbide cutting inserts. All cutting experiments were conducted using high and low levels of cutting speeds and feed rates. The study compared surface finish of machined surface and flank wear at cutting edge under dry, mist and flood cooling approaches. Scanning electron microscopy was utilized to investigate the flank wear at cutting edge under various cooling approaches and cutting conditions. Investigation revealed that TiAlN coated carbides performed comparatively better at higher cutting speed.
