Abstract: Because of multiple properties like higher values of corrosion resistance, formability, weldability along with greater structural utility aluminum alloys are generally gaining more and more demand in industries and household. With this the requirement for searching of higher quality cutting tool to machine aluminum is also growing. Here different cutting tools like MTCVD+TiCN+Al2O3, MTCVD+TiCN+Al2O3+TiOCN, MTCVD+TiN+TiCN+Al2O3+TiN, PVD AlTiN, cemented carbide (k-10) insert brazed with Polycrystalline Diamond and Polycrystalline Diamond Inserts are being used to machine rolled aluminum in dry condition and then comparative analysis are made. The cutting is of orthogonal type and capstan lathe is used for the same. Under different conditions of cutting the surface roughness along with morphology of chip are analyzed. Under constant depth of cut (doc) along with variable velocities and feed, the turning operation is performed. With SEM and XRD the identification including characterization of cutting tool were also performed. The polycrystalline diamond tool is found to give optimum surface finish, thin type of chip along with mirror like finish during machining operation.
