This work presents an experimental study to describe a wear zone in the P40 cutting tools used during a dry lathing. Mechanics of cutting has been presented to investigate the effects of edge geometry of the cutting tool carbide cutting insert. In the field of the metals cutting, the wear of the cutting tools leads to a degradation of the cutting zone and work. It is thus important to study the evolution of the cutting criteria allowing to follow the tool degradation during a manufacturing operations and thus to decide whether to replace the tool or not. Three parameters: cutting speed, cutting feed and cutting depth are considered to modelize the tool wear. An experimental device, particularly, a work-piece in Fk20MnCr5 material was cutted on a conventional lath for shaping, a high resolution sensor (HRS), had been used for measuring wear zone. The rela- tionship between “the cutting speed, the depth of cut, the feed rate” are analysed and modelled. In order to deduce this shape the spline method to modelize the wear zone has been used and a mathematical model has been proposed.
