The aim of study is experimentally investigate the influence of cutting speed, depth of cut and feed rate on surface roughness and cutting forces in high speed turning of monel k-500 in dry and MQL conditions. Cutting fluids have a reasonably low cost, their handling and carrying costs are very high and also, owing to their toxic nature, dumping of used fluids is a big problem because it can be hazardous to workers and also to the environment. To avoid these problems, a minimal-cutting-fluid technique called minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) was used in machining. The results indicated that MQL can decrease surface roughness 38 percent and it can decrease cutting force 59 percent.
