Abstract [en]

A nanoparticle-based cooling-lubricating fluid (nCLF), designed and fabricated by suspending engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in biodegradable vegetable-based fluids, has been developed for integration into material processing technologies. This new product exhibits tribological properties superior to those of conventional metalworking fluids. The major innovation is the ability to create a stable nCLF through the modification of ENP surfaces. Functionalized MoS2 nanotube ENPs were successful used as low friction additives. The experimental work, required for the proof-of-concept and technology validation, was carried out on three different levels to quantify the improved tribological behavior of nCLF. These experiments include standard tribological tests, mock-up tests to simulate machining, and actual machining tests. It is demonstrated that the specific properties of ENPs, fluid design and composition, as well as specific lubrication mechanisms, exhibit superior performance of nCLF in terms of friction and wear. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate how recent nanotechnology developments support innovation needed for transitioning to sustainable production via new product development and integrated industrial applications.
