Depending of surface finish requirements, the coating may be machined by turning or grinding. For rougher surface, turning using carbide tools, light cuts and efficient cooling to avoid overheating is recommended. Grinding in fine steps using cooling, light pressure and clean wheels gives smoother finish.
