Metal matrix composite (MMC) is one type of composite that has seen a significant increase in popularity in recent years. The growing breadth of MMC applications justifies further investigation of their machinability. Rapid machining methods are also utilized to increase production speed. The goal of this research was to discover if higher cutting forces resulted from rougher surfaces in high speed AA2024/n-SiC composites. The CO2 cryo coolant and MMC fabricated from AA2024/n-SiC, which is 16% Silicon Carbide, to reach cutting rates of 2700m/min. The experiment also used a 5-tiered central composites design. Cutting forces rise by 4-9% points when using CO2 cryogenic coolants, but surface roughness (SR) rises by 18-24% points. With coolant, feed rates below 0.12 mm/tooth, cutting speeds over 2300 m/min, and depth of cut (DOC) between 1.0 and 1.5 mm produce the smoothest surfaces.
