Abstract: Cutting Tools form the basis of the machining industry. The Machining industry relies on various processes such as cutting, welding, bending, rolling, turning, profiling, drilling, milling, finishing, which require an effective set of cutting tools. These machining activities need the right cutting tools so that the day to day operations can be performed in an extremely efficient manner while increasing the productivity of the industry. The basic function of a metal cutting tool is to get rid of the extra material from the workpiece and help in producing products with a better surface finish. The material used for the manufacturing of the cutting tools has a significant role to play in deciding the effectiveness and the longevity of the tool. Coated cutting tools were used in the industry for a long time. In recent times more than three fourth of all tools are coated with TiALN and TiN. The mechanical properties of these tools tend to change drastically under elevated temperatures and thus cause the failure of such tools. In this paper, our objective is to use Carbon Nano Tube nanoparticles as coatings for cutting tools. We aim to compare the mechanical properties of these coated tools and do a comparative analysis of tools coated with CNT nanoparticles versus the conventional multi-layered tool coatings.
