Abstract: Vegetable oils have traditionally been applied in food uses but recent trend suggests that it has economic usefulness as an industrial fluids. Increasing crude oil prices and emphasis on the development of renewable, environment friendly fluids have brought vegetable oils to a place of prominence. As environment pollution and health problem are becoming more and more concerned, the use of environment friendly lubricants is strongly supported by manufacturers’. The objective of this work is to determine the influence of lubricant on surface roughness and material removal rate (MRR) by using CNC LATHE Machine with AISI D2 steel. Taguchi Method is used for determining and optimising operating parameters. The experimentation is proposed to identify the influence of cotton seed oil on AISI D2 steel. Further the usability of cotton seed oil will be checked in turning operation at low and high speeds. The performance of cotton seed oil is compared with servo cut oil and soybean oil. The above experimentation results may help practitioners to compare and increase MRR, Surface finish using more environment friendly oil as lubricant.
Keywords: Cotton seed oil, Servo cut and soya bean oil, AISI D2 steel, CNMG carbide insert and Taguchi method.
