Abstract

Titanium Ti-Al-Nb is titanium-aluminum-niobium alloy which is commonly used in biomedical applications. However, because this is a difficult-to-cut material, cutting conditions and parameters must be thoroughly investigated in order to ensure component quality. Because minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) has been identified as a technologically possible strategy for improving the machinability of particular titanium alloys, the objective of this study is to compare the effects of MQL on the hole quality and tool vibration of titanium Ti-6Al-7Nb with the dry cutting condition. Drilling experiments were conducted to assess hole quality and vibration when drilling Titanium bar using carbide coated drills. The obtained findings show that MQL improves hole quality, resulting in better surface holes and reduced titanium burr formation under the MQL condition. Furthermore, tool vibration may be decreased under all tool wear and cutting parameter conditions.
