Abstract. This paper presents a study of Laser Assisted Machining (LAM) when turning the AlSi9Mg alloy reinforced with 20 vol.% particles of SiC. Due to hard ceramic reinforcing, components are difficult to machine using conventional manufacturing processes. The applied LAM process was used to heat the cutting zone. The aluminum matrix becomes softer and easer in plastic deformation, which leads to the reduction of pushing force of the SiC particles on the clearance face of a cutting tool, with is the reason of its wear. This research was carried out for tungsten carbide inserts. The results obtained with the laser assisted machining were compared with results obtained in conventional turning.
