Nano cutting fluids are the mixture of conventional cutting fluid and nanoparticles. Addition of the nanoparticles can alter wettability and lubricating properties. This paper presents a comprehensive review of published research works on the use of nano fluids in machining processes. Nano cutting fluid plays an important role in minimizing production time, cost and energy in different machining operations. The study covers the classification of nano fluids and their effect on both workpiece and cutting tools including surface roughness, tool wear and cutting force has been explained. As a result, the paper presents a roadmap for the researchers and practitioners during the utilization of nano cutting fluids in machining processes.
