The paper on failure analysis with the title “Accelerated Carbide Tool Wear Failure during Machining of Hot Work Hardened Steel: A Case Study” authored by Dr. George Pantazopoulos, Mr. Anagnostis Toulfatzis from the Mechanical Testing and Manufacturing Technology Department of ELKEME S.A. and Mr. Athanasios Vazdirvanidis and Mr. Andreas Rikos from Metallography and Electron Optics Department of ELKEME S.A. was published by International Journal of Structural Integrity / Emerald (Vol. 6 – No 2 – p. 290-299 – DOI 10.1108/IJSI-07-2013-0013). The paper mainly focused on the root-cause analysis of a carbide tool during machining of a hardened steel grade using automatic machining operations. Scanning Electron Microscopy coupled with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy together with Optical Profilometry were utilized as the principal analytical techniques to investigate and document the dominant wear failure modes of the carbide tool insert. Review and revision of machining parameters was suggested with positive impact towards the improvement of manufacturing process efficiency and cutting tool endurance. The final publication is available on Emerald Insight at www.emeraldinsight.com.
