PVD TiN-coated(T1) and CVD Ti(C,N)/TiC/Al2O3-coated(T2) inserts were used to machine a high strength low-alloy(HSLA) steel to assess their performance. The single-layer PVD-coated insert gave comparable tool life results to the triple-layer CVD-coated insert due to better coating adhesion, finer grain size and lower cobalt content. Observed active failure modes at high cutting speeds and feed rate were mainly chipping/fracture on the minor cutting edge for T1 and excessive nose wear for T2. The wear mechanisms on the former were interfacial sliding, dissolution/diffusion, and attrition wear mechanisms, while the latter wore principally by interfacial sliding and plastic deformation.
