Industrial revolution was a major corner-stone in human history in that it set in motion the battle for abundance. The world today is totally dependent on science and technology and the nations are classified now according to their degree of industrialization. Throughout the world today, there is a continuous struggle for cheaper production with better quality and cost competitiveness. Since the first introduction of titanium alloy in aerospace engineering in 1950’s, machining of titanium and its alloys has been a topic of great interest for industrial production and scientific research worldwide. Lot of research and effort of have been devoted to understand the basic science of machining this unique group of alloys in terms of chip formation, cutting forces, machining temperatures, tool wear, suitable machining environments etc. Some of the above problems are primarily caused by high machining temperature leading to poor productivity. Machining temperature can be controlled by efficient cooling methods like cryogenic cooling and high pressure cooling. Since conventional or low-pressure cooling method fail to effectively conduct away heat generated in cutting zone, which is responsible for the above said problems, it has been reported by different researchers that high pressure cooling can significantly improve machining of different steels and superalloys. In order to attain high efficiency in metal cutting, the current paper presents machinability study on turning of Ti-6Al-4V alloy under high pressure cooling using neat oil & water soluble oil.
