 Functions or Uses of Collents or Cutting Fluids

Water  base mainly grinding The important functions of cutting fluids are given as under.
(i) Cutting fluid washes away the chips and hence keeps the cutting region free.
(ii) It helps in keeping freshly machined surface bright by giving a protective coating against atmospheric, oxygen and thus protects the finished surface from corrosion.
(iii) It decreases wear and tear of cutting tool and hence increases tool life.
(iv) It improves machinability and reduce power requirements
(v) It prevents expansion of work pieces.
(vi) It cools the tool and work piece and remove the generated heat from the cutting zone.
(vii) It decreases adhesion between chip and tool;  provide lower friction and wear,  and a smaller built-up edge.
