PSII Nitrogen Implanted M2 Tool Steel for Wear Resistance in Wood Machining Tools
PM M2 saw blade inserts in the as-sintered or quenched and tempered conditions were ion implanted with nitrogen using Plasma Source Ion Implantation. The implanted inserts were subjected to a simulated sawing test to rank their performance against unimplanted M2 and stellite, a material used in the forest products industry for wood machining. Based on the results of this investigation, nitrogen ion implantation appears to be a promising method for reducing the wear of wood machining tools.
