Boring tests were conducted on aluminum alloys to investigate the effects of cutting fluid on machining performance. Statistically designed experiments were used to examine the role of such process variables as tool geometry, cutting conditions, work material, cutting fluid presence, cutting fluid concentration, and hydraulic oil contamination of cutting fluid. Responses for the boring tests were surface texture, forces, and observed built-up edge (BUE). The results indicate that the cutting fluid presence, oil concentration, and hydraulic oil contamination do not play a significant role in process performance under the conditions tested.
