The lubrication is a prime requirement of metal cutting industries to assure high quality performance. The conventional technique of coolant flow is less economical and eco-friendly. Recently, nano fluids found better cutting fluid in machining due to potential thermal and heat transfer properties. The role of micro-lubrication techniques and process optimization are equally important for improving process performance. The literature review presents the findings of different researchers in the field of nano fluids and micro-lubrication techniques. The experimental studies were focused on better process performance using micro-lubrication techniques, especially nanofluid MQL with optimized process parameters. The thermal conductivity of water based TiO2 nano fluid shows improvement by 22% in base fluids. The case study discussed which is focused on preparation and characterization of nano fluid, experimental setup and optimization of process parameters by Jaya algorithm. Finally, application of nano fluid, and challenges during nano fluid preparation is identified. The scope of research work is recommended for further study to obtain an economical, eco-friendly manufacturing process.
Key words: Cutting fluid / machining / modeling / micro-lubrication / optimization
