An Experimental Investigation on Influence of Novel Minimum Quantity Lubrication Technique on Tool Wear of Milling Titanium Alloy in Comparison with Dry Machining

Yeruva Venkata Siva Nageswara Rao and B. Navin Kumar

Abstract

The objective of this work is to reduce the tool wear of the cutting tool while machining the titanium alloy (Ti6A14V) using a novel minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) and compare it with tool wear of the tool used in the dry machining process. Two sets of groups were taken for the study, i.e., control group and the study group. The number of samples is calculated using a sample calculator. Twenty samples were taken for each group. In the control group, the machine operation is carried out on Ti6A14V without any kind of lubrication. In the study group using novel MQL technique, a small quantity of compressed lubricant is sprayed into the machining zone. The tool wear of the tool of each group is measured by a microscope. The effect of novel MQL technique on tool wear is studied. The tool wear of the samples from novel MQL is lesser than the samples obtained from the dry machining operation. It was found from the study that there is a 35% reduction in tool wear when the MQL technique has been implemented over dry machining.
