Abstract

This chapter presents two set of experimental studies on dry and minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) drilling with shallow and deep holes. The first study is focused on high-speed (high-throughput) shallow hole drilling of compacted graphite iron between dry and MQL conditions. The second example is focused on deep-hole drilling (without pecking cycle) of nodular irons under various MQL conditions. All tested are conducted with the state-of-the-art coated solid WC-Co drills. Detailed experimental methods and key results are presented.
