Dry machining is being proposed as a sustainable manufacturing process since it can help to respect both economical and environmental issues by avoiding the use of lubricants. However, some manufacturers are still hesitating to adopt dry machining, especially for steels, due to fears related to excessive tool wear and forces. The present paper attempted to compare the machinability and the surface integrity of three prehardened mould steels in dry and wet cutting conditions. The tested steels (P20-AIR MELT, P20-ESR and DIN 1.2711 ESR) were obtained using Air Melt and Electro-Slag Remelting (ESR) processes. For the tested conditions, results show that dry machining performs better than wet machining regarding tool wear and surface finish. These improvements depend significantly on melting process and chemical composition of the machined steels.
