Description

The residual stress state of coatings influences tool life and performance in machining significantly. Due to thermo-mechanical loads during the cutting process the coatings require tailored properties. Beside the coating structure the two most important properties are the residual stress state and the chemical composition of the coating. Therefore, the influence of these two properties is investigated in this study, comparing the cutting performance in continuous and interrupted cutting of 42CrMo4 (AISI 4140) and Ti–6Al–4V. It is shown that the residual stress states of the coating close to the surface and close to the substrate are important for the wear behavior. High compressive residual stresses near the substrate combined with a material-optimized composition increase the resistance against chipping. Flank wear resistance increases with high compressive residual stresses near the surface and decreasing stresses towards the substrate.
