Determination of a combination of process variables that are not appropriate in the end milling process will result in high surface roughness and can reduce the metal removal rate. Therefore, it is necessary to adjust the end milling process variables with the appropriate minimum quantity cooling lubrication. This study aims to obtain a combination of end milling process variables on ASSAB XW-42 material using the Taguchi-WPCA method to minimize arithmetic roughness (Ra), quadratic roughness average (Rq), and average roughness from peak to valley (Rz), and maximize metal removal rate (MRR) simultaneously. The cooling fluid method used is the minimum quantity of cooling lubrication (MQCL). The end milling process variable that is varied is the cutting fluid (soluble oil and vegetable oil), spindle speed (178 rpm, 310 rpm, and 570 rpm), feed rate (33.5 mm / minute, 59.4 mm / minute and 111.9 mm / minute) and the cutting depth (0.125 mm, 0.25 mm and 0.5 mm). The cutting tool used in this study is solid carbide end mill having four cutting edges with a diameter of 10 mm. The experimental design of the L18 orthogonal array was used in this study. The results showed that the optimal roughness of the workpiece surface and metal removal rate (MRR) was given by vegetable oil cutting fluid, 570 rpm of spindle speed, 33.5 mm / minute of feed rate, and 0.25 mm of the cutting depth. The Cutting fluid, spindle speed, and feed rate have a significant effect on the response variables observed simultaneously.
