When using new, very expensive superhard tool materials (diamond or CBN) for precision and ultraprecision machining of parts made, very often, from expensive materials, exact knowledge of the tool wear process (considering, of-course, its stochastic character) is absolutely necessary. It means, that we need new tool-life equations for these new tools. In the present paper, a new tool life relation is proposed based on machining experiments. It reflects the two-extremum form of tool life curves and is valid for a wide range of cutting conditions.
