Abstract

The aim of this work was to investigate adhesion increasing of titanium nitride coating deposited at hard alloy tool's surface pretreated by intense pulsed ion beam of different energy density. Two alloys were treated by high-power pulsed ion beam of 1÷K3.75 J/cm2 energy density. Analyzing the data obtained from tunnel microscopy, X-ray spectrum and measurements of surface relief geometry characteristics, such as roughness and profile length, we came to the following conclusion. First, the value of energy density of ion beam plays the key role in the formation of the relief and phase structure of the surface. Second, these two characteristics are almost independent of the initial characteristics of the irradiated alloys. Also, the article touches the results of scratch-test of the titanium nitride coating. The results demonstrate changes in wearing and destruction mode of the coating deposited at the tool treated by ion beam.
