Abstract. Tool steels have been commonly applied to die and mold parts because of the high strength and the high abrasive wear resistance obtained by the heat treatments. In order to achieve high machining rate, the heat-treated tool steels have recently finished with end mills coated by hard thin layers. The cutting force in milling of the tool steel should be controlled to improve the fatigue lives of die and mold, which are associated with not only the surface qualities but also the microstructure in the subsurface. This paper discusses the cutting process in milling of a cold work tool steel in terms of the cutting force and the residual stress in finished subsurface.
