Experimental Study on the Applicability of Minimum Quantity Lubricant Grinding
Grinding is often to use the grinding fluid because of the high temperature in the grinding area. During the process of grinding, which is used traditional way of grinding fluid supply, gas barrier layer which around high-speed rotary wheel impeded effective grinding fluid into grinding zone, so it creates huge waste and pollution. Minimum quantity lubricant (MQL) grinding as a way of Green Manufacturing is proposed in recent years. So far, the problem of MQL can be applied in grinding has not been confirmed. In this paper, the applicability of MQL in grinding is studied by comparing the experiment of traditional grinding fluid supply method, minimum quantity lubricant grinding method and dry grinding method, and this study is based on theoretical analysis of minimum quantity lubricant grinding.
