The effective extension of tool life while maintaining machining quality is an important research topic in advanced machining and sustainable manufacturing. Cemented carbide is widely used as the tool material in different manufacturing processes, and it has various forms and work ranges. However, the internal flaw in the tool material can induce a micro-crack which could result in the decrease of tool strength and toughness, and affect the tool life. Improving the tool cutting performance, slowing down the tool wear, and enhancing production efficiency are the eternal themes of cutting tool research. This research focused on a P10 cemented carbide tool. The influences of the electromagnetic coupling field (TEMCP) on the carbide tool life and the maximum of tool force are investigated. The correlation analysis between the TEMCP parameters and the tool life index is conducted using SPSS. The experiment proves that the TEMCP can significantly prolong the cemented carbide tool life, and that the magnetic intensity is a dominant factor. The TEMCP enriches the field technology theory and provides technical support for the sustainable manufacturing and research and development of a high-performance tool with important scientific meaning and research potential.
