Study the Influence of Novel Minimum Quantity Lubrication Technique on Tool Wear of Milling of PH17- 4 Stainless Steel in Comparison with Dry Machining

Shaik Liyakath and B. Navin Kumar

Abstract

The objective of this work is to reduce the tool flank wear of the cutting tool while machining the PH17-4 stainless steel using a minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) and compare it with tool flank wear of the tool used in the dry machining process. Two groups were considered 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 machining operation is carried out on PH17-4 without any kind of lubrication. In the experimental group using novel MQL technique, the compress lubricant is applied to the machining zone. The tool wear of the tool of each group is measured by a microscope. The results were analyzed to understand the influence of MQL. The tool wear of the samples from novel MQL is lesser than the samples obtained from the dry machining operation. The significant value obtained is p = 0.000, which is less than 0.05. It was concluded that there was 32% reduction in tool wear when the MQL technique was implemented over dry machining.
