Investigation of Grinding Ti-6Al-4V under Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) Condition
This paper investigates the surface grinding of Ti-6Al-4V under minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) condition. The experiment result indicated that grinding force ratio and specific energy have close related to grinding parameters. Due to the flow field of MQL mist has easy been affected by feed rate, the interaction between of MQL mist flow field and feed rates of worktable has great effect on surface roughness and surface quality. Additionally, comparing to dry grinding, MQL could help to improve surface quality by restrain chemical reactions and physical changes.
