Abstract: Surface quality is the essential requirement of industrial sector which depends on the certain machining parameters such as surface roughness, material removal rate and indirectly on frictional resistance and heat transfer characteristics during machining. Selection of cutting fluids enables the reduction of frictional resistance and heat generation between tool and work. At present, quality and machining characteristics of cutting fluids attain better focus to improve the surface finish using blends and additives, obviously nano additives are assumed to be a possible solution in betterment of machining outcome. Present work discusses the preparation of nano cutting fluids using boron nitride, characteristics and influence on machining parameters such as material removal rate, tool life particularly surface quality in surface grinding operation. The output results revealed that addition of boron nitride particles is providing greater surface finish when compared to the conventional cutting fluids.

Keywords: cutting fluid; surface grinding; nano manufacturing; boron nitride; surface finish; material removal rate.
