    Abstract

    The paper discusses effectiveness and resolution of five cutting tests (turning, milling, drilling, tapping, VIPER grinding) and their quality output measures used in a multi-task procedure for evaluating the performance of cutting fluids when machining aerospace materials. The evaluation takes into account the following process output measures: tool wear, cutting forces, torque, spindle power, geometrical accuracy, texture and integrity of workpiece surface. Using statistics, through calculation of the Hellinger distance, the resolution given by experimental data was evaluated and a comparison of robustness in ranking the performance of cutting fluids based on different output measures and cutting tests is presented.
