Abstract

Green cutting has become focus of attention in ecological and environmental protection. Steam is cheap, pollution-free and eco friendly. Therefore steam is a good and economical coolant and lubricant. Steam generator and steam feeding system were developed to generate and feed steam. Comparative experiments were carried out in cutting AA6061-15Vol% SiC 25μm particle size, with Cubic boron nitride inserts (CBN) KB-90 grade under the conditions of compressed air, oil water emulsion, steam as coolant and lubricant and dry cutting, respectively. The experimental results showed that with steam as coolant and lubricant the cutting force is further reduced, the friction coefficient, and the surface roughness value decreased and the cutting temperature lowered further there was reduction in built up edge formation. Therefore, the use of water steam as coolant and lubricant proves to be an environment friendly lubricant
