The purpose of this experimental investigation is to determine the influence of cutting fluids on tool wear and surface roughness during turning of AISI 316 with carbide tool. An attempt has been made to identify the influence of coconut oil (vegetable based cutting fluid) to improve efficiency of machining process. The efficiency of machining process depends up on various parameters like surface roughness on the work piece, temperature developed on tool chip interface, tool wear etc. The machining process is carried out with the help of four different machining parameters namely cutting speed, depth of cut, feed rate and the type of cutting fluid used. By varying these parameters, the surface roughness and tool wear are measured for three different cutting fluids namely coconut oil, straight cutting oil (immiscible with water) and water soluble oil. It has been found that the performance of coconut oil in reducing the tool wear and surface roughness during turning of AISI 316 steel is better compared to the other two cutting fluids. Coconut oil is used as one of the cutting fluids in this work due to its thermal and oxidative stability which is comparable to other vegetable based cutting fluids used in the metal cutting industry.
