Abstract

Cutting fluids occupied a place of prominence in metal cutting industries for centuries. To cater to the needs of state-of-art machining processes, several fluid formulations are available in the present day market. Of such available fluids, water-soluble fluids occupy a role of prominence. Though the need of cutting fluids is well stressed upon and is much explored, the role of different ingredients of the fluid on the surface of the machined component is not much investigated. The present work is an attempt to study the role of emulsifier on the machined surface through estimation of surface roughness and change in hardness of the samples. © IMechE 2009.
