In this study, cutting forces in the face milling operation of boron carbide particle reinforced aluminum metal matrix composite were investigated. Composite samples were produced using powder metallurgy technique. Then, milling operations were conducted using coated and uncoated tools at three different cutting speeds (100 m/min, 150 m/min and 200 m/min) and feed rates (0.05 mm/z, 0.10 mm/z, 0.15 mm/z). Experimental results showed that the cutting force increased with increasing feed rate
