Research on the Green Cutting Process with Water Vapor for the Cooling Lubricant
From the perspective of clean production process, this paper summarizes the present research status of green cooling machining at home and abroad and analyzes the problems of coolant cooling during machining metal materials in traditional method and. The green cutting process tests using water vapor for cooling lubricant were done and the single-factor method was used. The cutting tests for the high-temperature alloy GH4169, titanium alloy TC4 and stainless steel Cr12 were done by the carbide cutting toolsunder th condition of distilled water, emulsion, water vapor for cooling lubricant and dry cutting. These tests results showed that in same process parameters, main cutting force Fc can be reduced by about 30%, 26% and 22% respectively when using water vapor for cooling lubricant than using dry cutting, distilled water and emulsion, while the cutting temperature T can be decreased by about 12%, 6% and 3% respectively.
