Nanostructuring of the surface layer of a cermet (titanium carbide + nickel alloy) by pulsed electron-beam treatment is studied experimentally. The nanostructural characteristics of the surface of the cermet after electron-beam treatment in gas-discharge plasma containing argon, argon + nitrogen, and xenon + nitrogen improve its frictional coefficient and correspondingly extend the working life of cermet plates in metal cutting.
