Silicon carbide particles (SiCp) were impregnated in Al 7075 alloy through mechanical stirring assisted liquid state processing method to produce metal matrix composites (MMCs), followed by thermal treatment as per T6 condition. The composite was machined in dry condition using multilayer TiN coated WC inserts to investigate the influence of machining parameters on cutting tool temperature. Results revealed an increase of the tool temperature with escalation of cutting velocity, feed and depth of cut. Response surface quadratic model was generated to predict the cutting temperature at different levels of cutting parameters. The cutting temperature was then optimized using Taguchi approach and the optimized parameters were validated through some confirmation experiments.
