Mechanism Analysis of Improving Grinding Quality with Machining Fluids of Oil Filmed Water Droplets
Green machining fluids of oil-filmed water-droplets (OW) can be produced by means of combined mist-jet with cooled air, minimum naturally dissoluble oils (botanic or ester oils) and little water, which are beneficial to realize zero-emission machining and thoroughly eliminate the influences of the conventional water-miscible machining fluids on the operators’ health and the eco-environments as well as save energy consumption and lower in production costs. In this study, grinding performances and mechanism analyses of green machining fluids are investigated by comparison to the conventional ones such as emulsion flood coolant on the plane NC grinder. The investigations have further shown that green machining fluids can improve grinding quality in comparison with emulsion flood coolant due to good lubrication and cooling effects, which are applicable to many situations of machining processes.
