Study of New Vegetable Oil Based Eco-Friendly Cutting Fluid for Machining Operation
Aromal Kannnan | Tony Gim K
Abstract: The purpose of cutting fluids is to provide cooling and reduce the friction between tool and work piece at the shear zone. The work piece is first machined under dry condition. The air surrounding the work piece acts as the cooling agent. Since air has low thermal conductivity it acts as a poor coolant. In wet-machining, cutting work piece is machined by using conventional cutting fluid and veg-cutting fluids in which the basic constituents are taken from the nature. According to the studies 60 % companies are spending 20 % more amounts on their coolants/lubricants than on cutting tools. Five veg-cutting fluid is selected for Machining. The veg-cutting fluids are applied at a constant flow rate while performing turning operation of work piece under constant cutting conditions. The performance of cutting fluids is evaluated by measuring cutting temperature and surface roughness for each turn. The results are compared under Dry and conventional cutting fluid using Minitab17 and Excel 2010.
