Using nano-impact for predicting cutting tool durability

Nano-impact testing is increasingly recognised as a useful test for evaluating the effect of highly loaded repetitive contact situations. This includes the ability to assess the life of high speed machining tools. Nano-impact testing is particularly suitable for high strain rate contact testing. The strain rates of nano-impact testing are typically 100-1000 s-1, much greater than the nano-indentation strain rates of 0.0001 – 0.01 s-1.
