Machining processes are the most important method to production in the industry. In these processes, the friction in tool-chip surface during the machining is one of the affecting factors on surface quality of work piece. The generated heat by friction, augment the tool wear mechanism and increase the wear rate of cutting edge which leads to reduction the surface quality. The high talent of aluminum to built-up edge formation during machining has the undesirable effect on the surface quality. In the present study in order to improvement the cooling-lubrication conditions in machining of 6061 aluminum alloy, a new cutting tool with creating micro-grooves on its rake face was developed to achieve the improving of cutting fluid transfer to machining zone and reducing the friction between tool-chip surface. Two types of micro-grooves have been created by laser machining process. Specimens by changing the machining parameters and types of the applying of cutting fluid to machining zone were machined. The experimental results obtained from surface roughness survey and prepared images of work piece surface by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and optical microscope showed that by creating the micro-grooves, the delivery conditions of cutting fluid to machining zone has improved and its effect to reduction of surface roughness is clearly visible. By comparison the results of two micro-grooves showed that direction of grooves is the most important parameters in its design, so that the perpendicular texture is not only improves the surface quality but also increase the surface roughness compared to non-texture tool.
