Abstract

This work employed a commercial nitrocaburising process to diffuse a coating onto M2 grade high speed tool steel. Properties of the nitrocaburised coating (CN) such as thickness, roughness and hardness were characterised using a variety of techniques including Glow-Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry (GD-OES) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). A tribological test has been developed in which two nominally identical crossed cylinders slide over each other under selected test conditions. The test has been employed to investigate the wear performance of both CN coated and uncoated M2 specimens and frictional behaviour of the sliding interface between the tool and a AISI 1019 steel workpiece under unlubricated (dry) and lubricated conditions. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) was used to monitor the formation of chemical species from the oxidation of lubricant during tribological testing.
