This study discussed about the influence of the cutting speed and radial depth of cut on surface integrity (microhardness and work-hardening) when performing hard milling of AISI D2 workpiece. By using PVD-TiAlN, nine experimental trials were performed at various cutting speeds of 80, 100 and 120 m/min and various radial depth of cut of 3, 4 and 5 mm as feed and depth of cut remain constant at 0.05 mm/tooth and 0.05 mm. From the result, due to high cutting temperature generated, the cutting speed adversely affects the microhardness value of the subsurface layer. At higher cutting speed of 120 m/min higher hardness values were obtained when compared with lower cutting speed of 80 m/min. As for the effect of the radial depth of cut it is clear that it influences the microhardness beneath the surface. Higher microhardness recorded from the radial depth of cut increment associated with high cutting temperature generated during machining.
