Into a wide field of metal cutting, high speed cutting (hsc) has been introduced. This showed a high potential of reductions in production time [1]. Compared to conventional cutting processes, there are a higher rate of metal removal and less cutting forces. At the same time, the surface quality and the precision of the produced parts are improved [2]. Due to a huge increase in cutting velocity, a change in the governing material behavior, as a function of strain rate and temperature, and the mechanisms of deformation itself is expected. To ensure a stable process with reproducible results this behavior has to be understood. Therefore the resulting surfaces have to be characterized.
