Ecologically Friendly Dry Machining by Cutting Tool from Layered Composition Ceramic with Nano-Scale Multilayered Coatings
The challenges facing the development of environmentally friendly dry cutting technologies for various materials is investigated. The system used for the study includes a cutting tool equipped with inserts from layered composition ceramic with nano-scale multilayer coatings, an ionized gas medium which is supplied into the zone of cutting and the ultrasonic vibrations, which are placed to a cutting tool in the direction of the cutting speed. It is shown, that elaborated ecologically friendly dry machining not only does not match efficiency of standard machining technology with application of cutting fluid, but also in some cases surpasses it.
