Experimental results of the turning of Inconel 600 show that it is possible to change the tool wear mechanism and to increase tool life substantially by a proper variation of the cutting feed rate throughout the cutting process. Experiments clearly demonstrate this phenomenon and show a decrease of approximately 33% of the tool wear. Comparison between constant and variable feed processes are based on constant volume of material removed in a given time span, therefore maintaining a constant process efficiency for both cases. The results presented in this paper are based on a limited number of experiments and are therefore preliminary in nature.
