Abstract
The majority of manufactured parts for defense system applications are machined using a lubricating cutting fluid. Field data has shown that cutting fluids not only impact tool life and piece geometry of manufactured parts, but can alter the power used by machine tools by 15% to 30%. Cutting fluid chemistry can be optimized by careful study
