The paper presents a method for measurement of tribological properties of tool steels made by powder metallurgy deposited thin coating. TiAlN coating was deposited on the steel surface by PVD technology. The tribological pin-on-disc test was used for the determination of coating quality in terms of lifetime. The wear track of coated samples, after testing, was evaluated by light and electron microscopy. The structure of coated samples was observed by scanning electron microscopy.
