Evaluation of principal wear mechanisms of cemented carbides and ceramics used for machining titanium alloy IMI 318
AbstractAlthough significant advances in tool material development have been made to facilitate increased metal removal rates when turning steels and cast irons, no equivalent developments have beenExpand

Diamond like carbon coatings for potential application in biological implants—a review
Production of wear debris has been linked to the failure of numerous hip implants. With the current focus on increasing the implant longevity, thus wear and corrosion resistance is important. HardExpand

The corrosion–wear behaviour of thermally oxidised CP-Ti and Ti–6Al–4V
Abstract The use of commercial purity titanium (CP-Ti) and Ti–6Al–4V alloys in bio-medical implant applications has been limited by their poor resistance to surface degradation processes. In thisExpand

Corrosion–wear mechanisms of hard coated austenitic 316L stainless steels
Abstract Austenitic stainless steels like 316L are amongst the most commonly selected structural alloys for use in corrosion environments. Unfortunately, their resistance to surface degradationExpand

Characterisation and wear response of metal-boride coated WC–Co
Abstract Wear resistant transition metal boride coatings have received comparatively little investigation. In the present work, a series of CrB 2 , Mo 2 B 5 and WB coatings were successfully appliedExpand

Wear mechanisms of coated carbide tools
AbstractCemented carbide inserts, both uncoated and coated with single or composite layers of TiC, TiN, or Al2O3, were used to cut En. 8 and En 24 steel at speeds between 183 and 305 min−1 Quick-stopExpand
