Abstract:
In collaboration with Edgar Allen Tools, Sheffield, a detailed study has been made of the effect of various process parameters on titanium nitride (TiN) coatings chemically vapour deposited on powder metallurgy (PM) BT42 grade high speed steel (HSS) indexable cutting tool inserts. Initially, the characteristics of a TiN coating chemically vapour deposited on the HSS inserts in the Plansee reactor at Edgar Allen Tools, under the standard conditions employed by them, were determined in order to provide a logical starting point for the present study. This was clone using various techniques: X-ray diffraction, Auger electron spectroscopy, optical microscopy, fractography, scanning electron micrscopy, profilometry, micro-hardness testing and scratch-adhesion testing. Whilst sane of the characteristics of this TiN coating were found to be comparable to those of similar coatings presented in the literature, there was clearly scope for improvement.
