In this study, the laser milling process was used to investigate the machinability of particle reinforced aluminum matrix composites manufactured by powder metallurgy having dierent amount of SiCp (5, 10, 20 wt%). In this context, the laser parameters like scan speed and ll spacing were associated with the SiCp amount in aluminum (Al) matrix. According to the experimental results, the scan speed is dominant factor on both milling depth and surface roughness. Also, the reinforcement particle
