Machining Using Minimum Quantity Lubrication: A Technology for Sustainability
Nourredine Boubekri, Vasim Shaikh

The purpose of this article is to review the relevant literature in machining using minimum quantity lubrication particularly as it pertains to environmental, and health issues , and outline future potential research in this technology. The results indicate that the process of mist particles generation and their physical characteristics are yet to be determined for a whole class of machining processes and machining conditions. The resulting impact of the findings as related to machine and work place design is yet to be determined.
