The surface quality obtained by milling operations is one of the most studied aspects in the engineering. The main objective of this scientific paper involves to carry out an experimental research on the end-milling process of an aluminum alloy used in the aerospace industry. In this paper a comparative analysis was carried out on the machined surface quality, using different variations of the cutting speed and cutting depth. The cutting parameters values varies and the experimental program was thought in terms of properly modeled functions. In conclusion, a series of graphs were made based on the experimental data obtained by the surface roughness measurements.
