Abstract: Titanium machining poses a great challenge to cutting tools due to its severe negative influence on tool life primarily due to high temperature generated and strong adhesion in the cutting area. Thus, various coolant supply methods are widely used to improve the machining process. On account of this, tool life and cutting force are investigated based on dry cutting, flood cooling, and minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) techniques. The experimental results show that MQL machining can remarkably and reliably improve tool life, and reduce cutting force due to the better lubrication and cooling effect.
