This paper describes development of end milling of stainless steel by electrolyzed reduced water of dilute sodium chloride solution, instead of conventional cutting with cutting fluid which is not environmentally consciousness. First, experimental equipments were built with a machining center, cutting fluid supply system made from the bath pump, temperature sensor and temperature recorder etc., and end milling processing of stainless steel was performed using electrolyzed reduced water of dilute sodium chloride solution and conventional cutting fluid (water solubility and no water solubility) respectively. Next, measured surface roughness, evaluated surface deterioration layer, temperature change of work piece and wear state of end milling. As the results of all evaluations above-mentioned, there is no enormous discrepancy between the end milling using electrolyzed reduced water and that of conventional using cutting fluid. It is supposed electrolyzed reduced water instead of cutting fluid is environmentally consciousness process.
