Abstract

Reactive ion plating using an arc source was used to produce a titanium nitride layer, 5 MUm thick, on high speed steel turning tools. Comparisons were made between the cutting edge durabilities of uncoated and coated tools during oblique turning of mild steel at different cutting speeds. Dry cutting was used to accelerate wear. Wear curves were plotted and Taylor equations were derived. The cutting edge durability of coated tools was found to be 4.5 to 5 times greater than that of uncoated tools.
