Friction Behavior of Stainless Steel against Tool Materials in Metal Forming

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To investigate tool-workpiece compatibility, a friction test is carried out using a strip-ironing-type tribometer. Tool materials are a die steel, surface-coated steels and ceramics. Tribo-characteristic of austenite stainless steel against tool materials is evaluated by changes in friction coefficients and frictional surfaces. Some origins of surface damage are explained and TiN, VC and TiC coatings, and ceramics are estimated to have good antigalling properties to stainless steel. The changes in friction coefficient and magnetic permeability of stainless steel occur simultaneously, which is explained by generation of martensite induced by strain and friction.
