Increasing demands in machining of high-tech materials and dry machining lead to higher thermal and mechanical loads on cutting tools. In response to these challenges, enhanced coating solutions are applied to increase performance and life of cutting tools. However, during the production process the cemented carbide substrates are contaminated with grinding oils and residues of organic material. For the subsequent physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating process an intensive and high-quality cleaning process is necessary. In this contribution, plasma electrolytic polishing (PEP) is used as a novel alternative to conventional ecologically harmful cleaning baths. Apart from the ecological advantage, the surface of the substrate can be optimized with regard to the coating adhesion. To examine the performance of the different cleaning processes, machining tests were performed at the IWF to evaluate the layer adhesion and tool life of the tools.
