Abstract: Metalworking fluids are the portion of a big family of lubricants. Metalworking fluids have been widely used for cutting the metal and the most communal category of theses fluids are water mixing fluids. In this article, the methods of lubrication using during various operations of machining is presenting and also represent the various benefits of these functional fluids in machining with respect to surface finish, cutting force, temperature at the zone of cutting. The disadvantages and performance of various methods are discussed in terms of output variables and parameters of machining. From the various literatures, it can be reported that fluids of cutting which are made by the oil of vegetable, could be eco-friendly in machining mode with same in performance achieved after using the metalworking fluid which are based on mineral oil. The various lubrication methods are going to be finished because of less cooling rate.

Keywords: vegetable oils; lubricants; safety; health; eco-friendly; nanofluids.
