Machining of Metal Matrix Composites with Minimum Quantity Cutting Fluid and Flood Cooling

Abstract:

Article Preview

In the present work, minimum quantity cutting fluid (MQCF) technology was developed and applied for enhancing the machining performance by maintaining eco-friendly conditions. Machining experiments were carried on Al alloy/SiC metal matrix composite using cemented carbide tool with both MQCF and flood cooling. MQCF was effective in bringing down the forces, surface roughness, flank wear by ~17 %, ~5 %, ~12.5 % respectively compared to flood cooling. In MQCF, the consumption of cutting fluid is extremely low (10ml/min) compared to flood cooling (~ 400-600 ml/min). So, emission produced in MQCF are very less, which is eco-friendly.
