Numerical investigation on the process behavior of a closed-loop internal cooling system for turning operations
The development of sustainable manufacturing processes and the associated reduction of operating materials such as cooling lubricants represent key focuses on recent production technology. Thus, a novel tool system with a closed-loop internal cooling system for turning operations is presented in this study. The system design is based on numerical investigations of the heat flow Q⋅ with consideration of the thermomechanical load of the cutting tool and flow characteristics of the cooling fluid. The process behavior of the proposed system shows a significant dependence of the flow rate V⋅ and tool thickness tT in terms of tool temperature reduction DTHT.
