Table 5 Effect of coating materials on the cutting performances of coated tools

From: High-Speed Machining of Malleable Cast Iron by Various Cutting Tools Coated by Physical Vapor Deposition

Coating materials Cutting performance of coated tools
Cutting force Cutting temperature Specific cutting energy Flank wear Surface roughness
Thick TiN / TiAlSiN Highest Lowest Highest Higher Higher
Thin TiN / TiAlSiN Higher Higher Higher Highest Highest
nc-TiAlSiN Lowest Highest Lowest Lowest Lowest
