Abstract

Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL) is a technique of applying fine mists of Metal Working Fluid (MWF), instead a flood of it. This paper describes performance evaluation of novel coconut oil based MWF, during turning of AISI 304 Austenitic Stainless Steel and Mild Steel. The novel coconut oil based MWF has shown better heat absorption while machining AISI 304. Optimum parameter settings for turning of AISI 304 with coconut oil based MWF under MQL condition has obtained. Further flank wear was investigated by observing SEM images. Turning of AISI 304, with presence of new MWF, has shown an improvement in tool flank wear compared with a standard mineral oil based MWF.
