abstract

  • This work is focused on the cutting performance of a new cermet based on high-speed steel (HSS) matrix with hard phase TiCN. The processing route to manufacture the cermet M2 + 50 vol.% TiCN is described.
    Orthogonal cutting tests, carried out in a lathe showed the ability of
    the new cermet to achieve turning operations, showing reasonably wear
    resistance performing dry cutting operations. Tool life was
    significantly increased, when the cermet was compared with the reference
    material M2 without reinforcement and with commercial HSS M2. Evolution
    of flank wear and chipping wear, being the dominant wear patterns, were
    analysed.
