High speed machining for higher cutting speed and feedrate lead to a increase of surface quality and material removal rate. This paper presents a study of the influence of cutting conditions on the vibration characteristics obtained by machining with face milling cutter for high speed machining. In this paper, Taguchi experimental design method which is based on orthogonal array table was applied to study vibration characteristics with high speed face milling cutter. The experimental conditions used orthogonal array of $L_{27}(3^{13})$. In this work, design and analysis of experiments is conducted to study the effects of these parameters on the vibration by using the S/N ratio, analysis of variance. Four cutting parameters namely, feed rate, champer length, cutting speed, and depth of cut were optimized with consideration of vibration characteristics.
