The die and mold industry registers nowadays a significant growth due to current developments among others in the sectors of energy and aerospace. The manufacturing procedure of dies and molds primarily includes milling operations, which are commonly linked to complicated chip geometry and contact conditions between tool and workpiece. Therefore, the optimisation of the cutting conditions and the description of the tool wear is a great challenge for production engineers. In the described experiments, cement-coated carbide inserts fixed on milling cutters with various diameters were applied in down and up milling for monitoring the wear behaviour at various cutting edge entry conditions. The corresponding developed strain rates cause different film-substrate deformations and resulting loads. These phenomena were investigated with the aid of a new impact tester with adjustable impact force characteristics. The effective tool life up to a certain flank wear land width vers us the cutting edge entry duration was explained and analytically described.
