Micro end-milling is widely used in many industries to produce micro products with complex 3D shapes. The accurate modeling and prediction of surface roughness are important for evaluating the productivity of the machine tools and the surface quality of the machined parts. This paper presents an accurate surface roughness model based on the kinematics of cutting process and tool geometry by considering the effects of tool run-out and minimum chip thickness. The proposed surface roughness model is validated by micro end-milling experiments with the miniaturized machine tool. The results show that the proposed surface roughness model can accurately predict both the trends and magnitude of the surface roughness in micro end-milling.
