This paper presents results of the influence of cryogenic machining on the process stability. The stability diagrams are obtained experimentally using the coarse-grained entropy rate estimator for chatter detection from measured cutting forces. In comparison with conventional machining, enlarged stability windows are observed for the case of cryogenic machining. Based on the defined specific force models in turning operations, it is shown that a higher machining stability is achievable in cryogenic machining due to the reduction of specific cutting force components, in comparison with dry machining.
