Abstract

Machining dry, without any coolant can be advantageous because of decreased costs associated with the use of coolant and a decrease in possible negative effects on worker health and the environment. Many problems associated with dry machining occur because of elevated temperatures. Because of increased ductility at elevated temperatures, the burrs formed are larger.
