Abstract

Cutting temperature is the determining factor for other machinability indices of material. The conventional cutting fluids are ineffective in controlling the cutting temperature in the cutting zone. Cryogenic cooling is environmental friendly new approach for desirable control of cutting temperature. Current work involved the experimental study of the effect of cryogenic cooling on cutting temperature, cutting force, chip thickness and shear angle in the orthogonal machining of AISI 1045 steel and Aluminium 6061-T6 alloy. It has been observed that in cryogenic cooling method, the temperature was reduced to 1928% and the cutting force was increased to a maximum of 15% then dry machining of AISI 1045 steel. In machining of Aluminium 6061-T6 alloy, the temperature was reduced to 2739% and the cutting force was increased to a maximum of 10%.
