Micromachining of nanocomposites is deemed to be a complicated process due to the anisotropic, heterogeneous structure and advanced mechanical properties of these materials associated with the size effects in micromachining. It leads to poorer machinability in terms of high cutting force, low surface quality, and high rate of tool wear. A comprehensive review on mechanical properties of nanocomposites aiming to pointout their effects on micro-machinability has been addressed in part 1. In part 2, the subsequent micro-machining processes are critically discussed based on relevant studies from both experimental and modeling approaches. The main findings and limitations of these micro-machining methods in processing nanocomposites have been highlighted together with future prospects.
