Abstract: This paper investigates the effects of using nitrogen gas on Mist cutting. In this study we tried to improve the cooling effect of mist on cutting by using N2 gas to assist cooling. As a result, tool breakage was prevented when using carbide tools and a large reduction in tool wear was confirmed when using cermet tools. Our conclusion is that N2 gas assisted mist cutting reduces oxidation wear, which means that the cutting characteristics are better than in conventional mist cutting.
