The uses of Titanium alloys have largely been increased due to the benefits which are very substantial in some specific areas. Their applications are not only limited to in aerospace industries and biomedical implants but also widely introduced in marine and automotive industries. Yet the optimum cutting conditions for those materials are still under investigation. Ti-alloys are in the group of difficult-to-machine materials due to their poor machinability. The main reasons behind their poor machinability are high chemical reactivity, low modulus of elasticity and low thermal conductivity. Here in this paper a number of literatures related to optimization of machining parameters are reviewed and the problems related to machining of these Ti-alloys including their effects are summarized.
