A method for cooling carbide tools by increasing their effective thermal conductivity was investigated. Its essence is in coating the tool with a layer of high thermal conductivity material, specifically copper or silver. Reduction in cutting temperature near the cutting edge was verified by the embedded thermocouple and tool-work thermocouple measurement techniques. Theoretical models of the tool further support the experimental results and demonstrate a greatly altered temperature gradient at the cutting edge and its vicinity.
