The usage of diamond-like-carbon (DLC) tool coatings has previously been found to prolong the tool life of forming tools, while reducing the demands of the lubricants used for different metal forming operations. This allows for a more environmentally friendly production without the use of hazardous lubricants, which were previously deemed necessary due to their unique lubricating ability. While facilitating production without the use of hazardous lubricants, the occurrence of coating deterioration can cause damage to the forming tools and produce components with diminished surface quality. The present study outlines the possibility to employ measurements of acoustic emission for online tool condition monitoring in a strip reduction test, which emulates industrial production conditions for ironing.
