Title

High Pressure Waterjet Cooling/Lubrication to Improve Machining Efficiency in Milling

Abstract

The efficiency of the metal cutting operations depends upon the thermal/frictional conditions at the tool-chip interface. The use of high pressure waterjet as a coolant/lubricant to improve the thermal/frictional conditions in milling operations was studied here. The influence of high pressure waterjet delivered into tool-chip interface in two different methods, namely, waterjet injected directly into the tool-chip interface through a hole in the tool rake face, and waterjet injected into tool-chip interface through an external nozzle, was explored in this study. The effectiveness of these developed methods was evaluated in terms of cutting force, surface finish, chip shape and tool wear. © 1995.
