Abstract


Superlubricity theory brings a new idea and direction to solve the wear and friction problem during high-speed cutting. Based on the superlubricity theory, a new type of glycerine-acid cutting fluid with excellent anti-friction and anti-wear performance is developed. Using of the existing superlubricity agent, the glycerol-acid is added to the cutting fluid, and a new environmentally friendly water-based cutting fluid is designed. Furthermore, taking the titanium alloy as the object, the high-speed cutting test of the new type of cutting fluid is carried out. Finally, a large number of comparative analyses are carried out based on the test results. The research shows that the new type of cutting fluid has better cooling and lubrication performance, and can play a good role in reducing the cutting tool friction and improving workpiece surface quality. The optimum concentration range for new type of cutting fluids is 6%–10% glycerol and 9%–13% boric acid.
