Abstract

Green manufacturing is a method in which products are produced by consuming less energy and natural resources and being safe to employees, consumers, environment and society. This paper presents an experimental study that compares the machining characteristics when a soy-based cutting fluid and petroleum-based alternate are used in turning medium and high carbon alloy steels. The result of the study will provide reference for cutting fluid management personnel to make proper decision to substitute traditional cutting fluids with the environment-friendly product. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
