The modification of inserts by reducing their thickness will lead to sustainable machining by attenuating the use of material during fabrication, operation, and disposal of the inserts. This study investigates the performance of modified carbide turning inserts when compared to conventional ones. Dry turning process was performed using finishing parameters. It was observed that the modified inserts could perform equivalent to conventional inserts regarding progressive tool flank wear, tool life and surface roughness in machining AISI 1017 steel. This work might be the first report on the performance of reduced thick inserts in metal machining as a strategy for steps towards sustainable manufacturing.
