In order to reduce the adverse effects on environment and avoid health problems caused by the excessively used cutting fluids, a green machining technology, minimum quantity lubrication (MQL), is drawing more and more attention. The cryogenic minimum quantity lubrication (CMQL) technique which combines the advantages of cryogenic air and MQL can improve cooling and lubricating performances during machining H13 steel. Internal cooling cutters have been widely employed to feed the cutting medium to the cutting zone directly. In this research work, cutting forces and tool wear were analyzed during side milling H13 steel with three kinds of internal cooling milling cutters under CMQL condition. The experimental results showed that the milling cutter with double straight channel (DSC) performed best in extending tool life and reducing cutting forces. In the perspective of economy and environmental protection, internal cooling cutter with DSC is recommended in cutting of H13 steel under CMQL condition.
