Milling, gear accuracy, near-dry machining, sustainable machining.


This paper highlights the importance of the sustainable machining technologies in achieving sustainable development objectives. The machining processes constitute a major manufacturing activity that contributes to the growth of the global economy. The research and the development in the machining processes have improved machining performances through advanced tool materials, higher productivity and quality, while the environmentally and the health-friendly technologies are becoming increasingly important for achieving cleaner, healthier, and safer machining. In the context of the sustainable machining, the case study presents the influence of the environment-friendly techniques use on the accuracy of 16MnCr5 gear with small modulus, manufactured by milling.
