The burr formation is one of the most common and undesirable phenomenon occurring in machining operations which reduces assembly and machined part quality. Therefore, it is desired to eliminate the burrs or reduce the effort required to remove them. This paper presents the results of an experimental study and describe the influence of cutting parameters on slot milling burrs, namely top burrs and exit burrs. Statistical methods are also used to determine the controllability of each burr. A computational model is then proposed to predict the exit up milling side burr thickness based on cutting parameters and material properties such as yield strength and specific cutting force coefficient that are the only unknown variables in the model. The proposed computational model is validated using experimental results obtained during slot milling of 2024-T351 and 6061-T6 aluminium alloys.
