The influence of solid lubricant for improving tribological properties in turning process

Abstract : Control of machining zone temperature is achieved by providing effective cooling and lubrication. Though cutting fluids are widely used to carry away the heat in metal cutting, they cannot be recommended in the light of ecological and economic manufacture. Hence, there arises a need to identify eco-friendly and user-friendly alternatives to conventional cutting fluids. The present work features a specific study of the application of molybdenum disulphide as solid lubricant for improving tribological properties in turning and to overcome the limitations that arise with the use of cutting fluids or while dry machining. An experimental setup developed has been used to maintain constant flow rate of solid lubricant powder continuously on to the workpiece and tool interface zone. Results are encouraging with overall improvement in machining properties in terms considered parameters as compared to wet and dry techniques, due to the reduction in friction at tool/work and tool/chip interface.
