  • Auswirkung der Schneidkanteneigenspannungen auf das Verschleißverhalten PVD-beschichteter Zerspanwerkzeuge
    Residual stresses in hard material layers have a large influence on the tool life. Measurement at the cutting edge is not possible with the established methods. Raman spectroscopy shows high potential for this measurement task. The measurement method is calibrated by X-ray diffraction in the scattering vector mode.
