Abstract. Deep Cold Rolling (DCR) process is used in various industries to improve the fatigue life of metallic parts by introducing work hardening, deep layer of compressive residual stresses and polished surface finish. In this paper, the influences of the angled design for a hydrostatic tool and its indentation depth to impart compressive residual stresses are studied and compared to its straight tool counterpart for treatment of IN718 material. Residual stress depth profile measurements, using the XRD technique, were employed to determine differences caused by using the angled and straight tool design. Higher rolling forces are measured in an angled tool design with a high indentation depth as compared to a straight tool design caused by the slip stick effect on the internal parts of the tool. This leads to high plastic deformation in the test material significantly affecting the compressive residual stress depth profile depending on its exisiting state.
