The Effects of a High-Pressure Coolant Jet on Machining
A high-pressure coolant system was used to machine Ti6Al4V and Inconel 901. A 14.5 MPajet of cutting fluid was applied against the chip flow at the rake face of the tool and this works as anExpand

Turning of Inconel 718 with whisker-reinforced ceramic tools applying vegetable-based cutting fluid mixed with solid lubricants by MQL
Abstract The rule of thumb in the machining of nickel base superalloys with ceramic tools is to cut dry and no attempt of applying MQL with the addition of solid lubricant was made, according to theExpand
