In recent decades, the emergence of advanced coating materials has greatly impacted the tooling techniques applied to the machining processes of various types of engineering workpiece materials. Advanced coating materials are generally featured by superior mechanical/thermal behaviors in comparison with conventional tool materials such as high-speed steel and tungsten carbide. The outstanding characteristics possessed by coating materials can greatly improve the cutting conditions dominating the tool–chip and tool–work interactions during the material removal process. This can be evidenced by the remarkable reduction of cutting forces/temperatures, the improvement of cut surface quality as well as the extension of tool life. To date, many research studies have shown the successful applications of advanced coating materials for high-quality and high-efficiency machining of difficult-to-cut materials. The results of these investigations have contributed to the scientific understanding of the coating material effects on the cutting responses of engineering materials and the wear mechanisms of various coated cutting tools.
This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for both academic and industrial researchers to disseminate their original research and critical review articles on all aspects of advanced coating materials utilized for diverse machining operations. Papers reporting important findings, novel insights, or useful techniques within the scope of this Special Issue are all welcome.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Fabrication and characterization of advanced coating materials;
- Evaluation of cutting performances of coated tools;
- Modeling and simulation of machining operations using coated tools;
- Machinability assessment of hard-to-cut materials;
- Thermal and frictional behaviors of coating materials;
- Wear modes and failure mechanisms of coated cutting tools;
- Quantification of coated tool wear in machining;
- Wear control strategies of coated cutting tools;
- Theoretical prediction of coated tool life;
- Machining quality and defects assessment when using coated tools.
