Abstract

We present an ultrasonic MQL system for generating size-controlled droplets, engaging the requirement of variations in MQL droplet size depending on the used machining process and material. The proposed system architecture features four series chambers with a different vibrating mesh actuator; it demonstrates that a wide range of material- and machining process-specific lubrication requirements can be achieved by varying the mist atomization rate and droplet diameter. The vibrating-mesh outlet pore sizes were differentiated between 2 to 20 μm and driven by a 100 V peak-to-peak bipolar sinusoidal voltage. The oil with a kinematic viscosity of 8.9 cSt contacted the atomizing surface using an FLDC-configuration. Four-size mists were generated with mean volumetric droplet diameters of 19.1, 21.7, 39.0 and 48.3 μm; their atomization rates vary between 1.3 to 39.4 ml/h. The droplet size control must provide more flexibility for emerging ultrasonic MQL systems with improved lubrication and optimized machine-working performance.
