Effect of Cutting Parameters on Minimum Quantity Lubrication Machining of High Strength Steel
The cutting performance (tool wear, surface roughness of machined work-piece and chip formation)of wet, dry and Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) machining when milling of high strength steel (PCrNi2Mo) using cemented carbide tools under different (cutting speed, depth of cut, feed rate) was analyzed. The experimental results showed that as the cutting speed, depth of cut and feed rate changed, MQL conditions provided the lowest flank wear and the highest surface quality. Chip formation produced under MQL conditions become more favorable in terms of color and shape. The results obtained prove the potential of using MQL technique in the milling process of high strength steel (PCrNi2Mo) for high cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut.
