Cutting Fluid in Abundancy – CFA is a standard cooling technique used in machining due to the good relationship between quality and productivity. However, due to sustainability problems, economic, social, and environmental, several research types have been carried out worldwide about replacing or eliminating these inputs in the cutting process. In this work, three full factorial Design of Experiment - DoE were used to verify the performance and feasibility of replacing the Cutting Fluid in Abundance - CFA by Minimum Quantity Lubrification – MQL during the bearing of holes bored with Polly Cristaline Diamond – PCD tools in aluminum alloy. The input variables were cutting speed (𝑣𝑐), feed per knife (𝑓𝑧) and depth of cut (𝑑𝑜𝑐). While output variables were diameter and circularity deviation. For each machining atmosphere, dry, CFA, and MQL, a full factorial DoE (2 3 ) was performed with test and replicate. A total of 48 runs were performed. The main conclusion is that MQL showed similar CFA results, as proven by the mean hypothesis test. Based on the results of this work, it can be affirmed that MQL could replace the CFA technique.
