This paper presents an experimental approach aiming to find optimal cutting parameters on milling of a new material. The austenitic stainless steel without nickel is famous for its very bad machinability. This experiment has allowed determining optimal cutting parameters, behaviour of this material and tools to be used. The results are encouraging and show that it’s possible to machine this material which is of interest for the watch industry.
