Corrosive-wear characteristics of diamond-coated cemented carbide tools

Abstract

Continuous milling tests with diamond-coated and uncoated cemented carbide tools and polycrystalline diamond tools were carried out on air-dried and wet melapi (Shorea sp.) and western redcedar (Thuja plicata D. Don). These tools were examined for corrosive-wear characteristics of the tool-edge appearance, cutting-edge profile, edge recession, and cutting-power consumption. The tool surfaces were observed with a scanning electron microscope and were analyzed by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Based on these examinations, the occurrence of corrosive wear while cutting wet woods was confirmed for the uncoated and polycrystalline diamond tools. In contrast, the coated tools did not exhibit corrosive wear, nor did delamitation or wear of the diamond film occur with any of the work materials. The diamond-coated tools showed high resistance not only to mechanical wear but also to corrosive wear.
