Application of Cutting Fluids with Ultrasonic Treatment in Metal Cutting


Article Preview

For investigating the effect of ultrasonic treatment on the cooling and lubricating action of cutting fluid, an ultrasonic treatment system of emulsion fluid was developed to be used in cutting experiments. And the comparison experiments were carried out with YT15 tool turning 45 steel, under the conditions of dry cutting, fluid and ultrasonic treatment fluid. The results show that as ultrasonic treatment one used cutting forces decrease about 10%-15% and 5%-10% to dry cutting and fluid; the cutting deformation coefficients reduce too; and the machined surfaces are enhanced. Therefore, the cooling and lubricating performances of the fluid are improved by ultrasonic treatment. As a result, the using quantity of emulsion fluid would reduce indirectly, and this help to energy saving and emission reducing.
