This paper presents a study of tool wear and geometry response whenmachinability tests were applied under milling operations onthe Super Austenitic Stainless Steel alloy AL-6XN. Eight milling trials were executed under two cutting speeds, two feed rates, andtwo depths of cuts. Cutting edge profile measurements were performed to reveal response of cutting edge geometry to the cuttingparameters and wear. A scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to inspect the cutting edges. Results showed the presenceof various types of wear such as adhesion wear and abrasion wear on the tool rake and flank faces. Adhesion wear represents theformation of the built-up edge, crater wear, and chipping, whereas abrasion wear represents flank wear.Thecommonly formed wearwas crater wear. Therefore, the optimum tool life among the executed cutting trails was identified according to minimum lengthand depth of the crater wear.The profile measurements showed the formation of new geometries for the worn cutting edges due toadhesion and abrasion wear and the cutting parameters.The formation of the built-up edge was observed on the rake face of thecutting tool. The microstructure of the built-up edge was investigated using SEM. The built-up edge was found to have the austeniteshear lamellar structure which is identical to the formed shear lamellae of the produced chip.
