In micro scale, the size of cutting tool and shape significantly contributed to the machining performance. Many studies have been done to improve the cutting tool life and machined surface quality. Problems could become more severe when the workpiece has a low thermal conductivity while having high level of ductility such as titanium alloy. In this study, micro ball mill cutting tool is selected to produce a linear groove on a titanium alloy plate. The process is integrated with a laser source as a pre-heating element on the work piece surface. The condition of the flank surface of the tools and cutting force were observed and discussed. The influence of tool orientation and laser heating parameters in laser assisted micro ball milling (LAMM) were also discussed. It was found out that adhesion is the dominant tool wear mechanism thus fluctuate the cutting force value.
