The machining process is the most common method for metal cutting, especially in the fabrication of biomaterials and artificial implants. In modern industry, the goal of production is to manufacture products at a low cost, with the highest quality in the shortest time. The main focus of the research presented here is to provide a review of the machinability of metallic and ceramic biomaterials in traditional machining processes, such as turning, milling and grinding. Thereafter, machining strategies, machinability and surface characteristics post machining are discussed. To provide a better understanding of the machining process, various cutting tools and fluids are analysed. Finally, the current research gap and directions of prospect investigations are highlighted.
