Join Cutting Tool Engineering for a one-hour webinar based on this month’s cover story, “A Fluid Choice.” The article examines the options for high-pressure coolant when deep-hole drilling.
Related Glossary Terms
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task.
