IntroductionThe stamping process is widely used to produce the structural parts of most automobile bodies because of the high efficiency, favorable formability, and good interchangeability of forming. Meanwhile, this forming can reduce the weight of the automobiles owing to the thinner parts that can maintain the frame stiffness and increase the mechanical performances during the deformation process. However, the surface properties of the stamping dies should be taken into consideration because of their wear and the severe working conditions during the forming, which will shorten the life of the stamping dies and reduce the quality of the final products. It is essential to investigate how to improve the surface properties of dies, such as their hardness, wear resistance, etc.In recent years, thin solid film technology has been successfully used to improve the tribological performance of components. Particularly, TiN films have received much attention for their excellent properties, including high hardness, great wear resistance, preferable chemical stability, and biocompatibility in many applications. Previous research indicated that the tribological performance of TiN films was closely related to their microstructure, chemical composition, and mechanical properties. Characterization of these properties was affected by the preparation method and deposition parameters. Various deposition techniques have
