Abstract

The high temperature generated during machining processes is one of the causes of the wear on the cutting tool. The use of cutting fluid in machining is the way to reduce the temperature and lubricate the cutting zone. Mineral based cutting fluid is one of the types of lubricant in machining process but this type of cutting fluid induces negative effects especially to the environment, operator’s health and the machining cost itself. The supercritical carbon dioxide (SCCO2) has seen as potential to replace the mineral based cutting fluid. In this paper, the experiment were carried out using orthogonal cutting process in which the efficiency of SCCO2technique was compared to MQL technique with respect to cutting temperature, cutting force, tool-chip contact length and chip thickness. The experimental results showed that the application of SCCO2as the cutting fluid was more efficient for the machining process as it reduced the cutting temperature, cutting force, tool-chip contact length and produced better chip thickness compared to MQL machining technique.
