The aim of this paper was to analyse in depth the existing research on the effectiveness of forced cooling and the directions in its improvement and development against the background of the increasing needs of machine tools and machining processes. The forced cooling methods used and their importance from the point of view of the development of machine tools are discussed. A detailed review of the state of the art in this field, including the latest research reports, is carried out. The essence and methods of forced cooling parameters improvement through holistic modelling, numerical simulations and optimization are presented. Moreover, the currently achievable effectiveness of forced cooling is illustrated with the results of the research conducted by the authors. Finally, conclusions are drawn and suggestions concerning the future research in this field are put forward.
