Tool life is a parameter closely connected to the lubricating effect of a cutting fluid. Long tool life in turning corresponds to good lubrication and a process with good lubrication is preferred, since it normally results in lower tool wear and better surface quality. Cutting forces are mainly important for understanding the mechanism of the cutting process itself and to perform in this way data about the influence of the cutting fluids.
