Abstract: Machining is the best approach to generate high-quality mechanical parts in the form of accurate dimensions and a smooth surface. Performance characteristics of machining (i.e. surface roughness, material removal rate, tool life, etc.) depends upon many factors such as machining parameters (cutting velocity, feed rate and depth of cut), machining strategies (cutter offset, rolling direction of component), accuracy of machine and cooling techniques (dry or air cooling, flood cooling, minimum quantity lubrication cooling, cryogenic cooling, etc). Many studies are performed to improve the quality characteristics during face milling by different methods but still, cooling techniques may be improved for the protection of the environment and also to reduce machining cost. Cutting fluids are not only used for cooling metal cutting operations but also to remove the chips from the cutting zone. However, excessive utilization of cutting fluids has a negative effect on human health and the environment during its application and disposal. So over-utilization of coolant should be avoided to overcome this problem or need an alternative method to reduce the utilization of cutting fluids. To reduce this issue, the minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) technique is used as an alternative to avoid the use of excessive coolants during machining and also gives similar performance as compared to the flooded cooling system.
