The aim of using coolant is to keep part- and machine temperature constant and to flush swarf out of the machining area, to ensure a robust process. Many independent investigations in the metal cutting industry proved the significant influence of coolant on the part costs. Machining operations which are performed without any lubrication/cooling fluids are possible with today's cutting tool technology and state of the art machine tool manufacturing. The positive effects are cost reductions and improved working conditions for machine operators.
