Abstract

This chapter provides comprehensive knowledge regarding cutting fluids (CFs), their classifications and basic categories, including non-water-miscible, water-miscible and water-based CFs. Main properties and application areas of these three CFs are characterized and specified. Such effects as cooling, lubricating and processing (i.e., the influence on the behaviour of the cutting process) resulting from supplying CFs are outlined. The strategies of delivering CFs to the cutting zone, including flooding, external and internal supply of pressured CFs, along with minimum-quantity lubrication techniques as well as cryogenically cooled gases (CO2 snow and liquid nitrogen (LN2)) are described. Some advanced constructions ...
