Experimental study on minimal nanolubrication with surfactant in the turning of titanium alloys

Experimental study on minimal nanolubrication with surfactant in the turning of titanium alloys The superiority of minimal nanolubrication for effective, efficient and cleaner machining environment has been widely discussed in the literature. However, due to their high surface energy, nanoparticles coagulate or agglomerate easily, which makes it difficult to disperse them in the base fluid. Hence, the addition of a small amount of surfactant should be able to overcome this issue. This research elucidates and extends fundamental knowledge regarding the effect of a sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate surfactant mixed with different nanoparticle concentrations towards the sustainable machining of titanium alloy using design of experiment methodology. The experimental results indicate that the inclusion of a sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate surfactant in aluminium oxide nanolubricant provides the best lubricating properties for the machining of the titanium alloy. At 0.4 wt% of nanoparticles and a feed rate of 0.1 mm/rev, minimum values of surface roughness and power consumption can be achieved. Meanwhile, minimal tool wear can be attained by application of a 0.6 wt% nanoparticle concentration and 0.1 mm/rev feed rate. Further statistical analyses emphasized that the feed rate was the most significant factor that influenced the surface roughness and power consumption, while the mixture of nanoparticles with surfactant and feed rate has the greatest effect on the tool wear resistance of the cutting insert. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology Springer Journals
