In the case of high-strength or low thermal conductivity material milling, tool breakage occurs easily because of the high friction temperature. Therefore, the effectiveness of the coolant supply is very important for proper tool cooling. As the manually adjustable joint mechanism nozzle is generally used for coolant supply, the cooling efficiency is very low. It also has a bad influence on the workspace environment because of coolant scattering. In this study, the milling characteristics of STS316L were investigated according to the coolant spray position based on the automatic adjustable system. Tool wear and surface roughness were measured according to the coolant spray position. Through these experiments, the effectiveness of the fabricated system was explained.
