The milling operations are a topical and especially future-oriented methods. The purpose of this scientific paper is to carry out an experimental research referring to the end-milling process of the 7136 aluminum alloy. This paper is a continuation of the own research activity carried out so far, within a company with the field of activity in the aerospace industry. The main objective is a comparative analysis which was carried out on the surface quality - machined on various cutting regimes. The cutting process parameters used in the end-milling process are: the cutting speed, the feed per tooth and the cutting depth. The obtained results of the surface roughness’s were measured longitudinally on the tool feed motion using a professional surface tester.
