Abstract: Austenitic stainless steels are extensively used in the areas with high corrosion. The high heat resistance and strength make them difficult-to-cut materials. The tool life in machining austenitic stainless steels is restricted by the high cutting force and temperature which induce the tool wear and edge chipped. To achieve tool edge strength and reduce the edge-related problems, tool edge preparation is applied by introducing the chamfered and honed edges. In the current paper, the effects of the cutting edge…
