Tools with micro-textured surfaces can successfully lessen the primary cutting surfaces and decrease tool friction. To conduct additional research on the impact of microtexture parameters (depth, width, and spacing) on the cutting of titanium alloy. In this paper, a two-dimensional finite element simulation model for titanium alloy cutting using micro-textured tools is established by using Abaqus software, based on the response surface method, the influence of different microtexture parameters on the chief cutting surfaces and the interaction of microtexture depth, microtexture width,and microtexture spacing is obtained, it is concluded that the effect of the depth of microtexture on the chief cutting surfaces is the most significant, the microtexture spacing is the second, and the microtexture width is the weakest. The optimum parameters of the microtexture tool are microtexture depth 20μm, microtexture width 30μm, and microtexture spacing 80μm. The chief cutting surfaces is 208.26 N.
