Machining of Ti alloy has drawn huge attention from the researchers due to its wide span of usage in automotive and aerospace industries recently. Although, the excellent properties of Ti alloy make it useful to be used in different important industries, these properties are also making this alloy to be one of the hardest, and difficult to machine material. Hence, this paper aims to investigate micro-electro-discharge machinability of Ti-6Al-4V alloy using solid carbide end mill. Full factorial design was used to analyze the output response variables; such as machining time, tool wear and overcut as functions of voltage, capacitance and tool rotation. Main effect plot, interaction plot and Pareto chart were generated in order to better understand the effect of experimental parameters. Finally, predicated model and 3D surface response plot of output variables were also generated.
