In this experiment each tool produced by a particular manufacturer was tested at a set of roughing and finishing machining conditions for a turning operation of 4340 heat treated steel to determine if any significant differences in performance existed between the roughing and finishing grades in their respective recommended areas of application. It was concluded that there was very little significant difference in performance between the two TiC coated grades over the set of roughing and finishing conditions; and consequently, there is no need for two steel cutting TiC coated grades.
