Specific features of failure of hard-alloy cutters have been studied. The cup-tip cutters from the T14K8 hard alloy have been used as examples for investigations. It has been established that the edges of cutters fail in stages by fragmentation with the appearance of mesostrips. It is shown that surface ultrasound acoustic standing waves generated in the process of turning of steel may play an essential role in the failure of cutters.
