It is indispensable to explore the appropriate level of surface residual stress to enhance the wear resistance of coated tools. TiAlSiN-coated carbide tools with dissimilar surface residual compressive stresses (− 300 ~ − 600 MPa) are acquired via micro-sandblasting, which are used in the high-speed sliding friction experiments and turning experiments. The influence of residual stress on the sliding wear and cutting wear performance of TiAlSiN coated tools is investigated. The results show that with the improvement of surface residual compressive stress (absolute value), the friction coefficient and wear rate are reduced. The sliding wear resistance of the coated tool is enhanced. In addition, the cutting performance of the tool is also improved with the increase of residual compressive stress (absolute value). However, the excessive surface residual compressive stresses (absolute value) can lead to severe coating peeling, which in turn impairs the capability of wear resistance. The TiAlSiN-coated carbide tool with the stress of − 500 MPa presents the best wear resistance in the high-speed sliding wear and cutting wear process.
