Effect of Minimum Quantity Lubrication System for Improving Surface Roughness in Turning Operation
Due to increase in temperature at the cutting zone, the tool wear and surface roughness along with the non-uniform chip formation and the dimensional deviation of the job by using the conventional cutting fluid, the machining operation experts have directed their concentrations in order to achieve a smooth machining operation by using minimum quantity lubrication (MQL). As a consequence, numerous efforts can be seen for not only having the optimum cutting parameters but also other parameters that enhance the product quality and the surface roughness. In this regard, relevant experimental and numerical data outcomes not only MQL but also conventional cutting fluid (CCF) in the turning operation of 50HRC steel has been investigated experimentally. It is revealed that the surface roughness becomes optimal and significantly reduced for the condition of MQL with that of dry and conventional flood lubrication.
