Abstract

Environmental and health issues associated with the use of conventional cutting fluids in machining operations is an ever growing concern among industries, workers, environment activists and governments. The aim of this paper is to explore the effects of alternative environmentally friendly approaches on the machinability of 6082 T6 aluminium alloy as compared to traditional flood machining. The experimental studies indicated that the best surface roughness (Ra) can be produced by dry machining followed by flood. However, microscopic analysis of the surfaces revealed that the surfaces produced in dry and flood conditions suffer from micro defects such as ductile deformation, smearing and chip redeposition, which have been eliminated through using cryogenic cooling techniques.
