Abstract

The article describes the role and types of cooling lubricants used in grinding processes. Conventional methods of coolants delivery into the grinding zone were described, such as: flood method, high-pressure jet method, centrifugal coolant provision method as well as methods method to minimize coolant flow rate: minimum quantity lubrication (MQL), minimum quantity cooling (MQC) and minimum quantity cooling lubrication (MQCL). Against this background, a methods were presented to completely eliminate grinding fluid from the grinding process (dry grinding) like: impregnated grinding wheels and cold air guns (CAG).
