Machining difficult-to-cut materials, which include most high-alloy chromium-nickel steels and alloys, requires optimization of cutting parameters, correct application of tool materials, cutting blade geometry, etc. The particular relevance of a scientifically based analysis in addressing these issues is due to the large costs incurred in machining products made from such materials. The possibilities of experimental research to provide correct technological recommendations are quite limited. Instead, analytical modeling is imperfect due to the complexity of formalizing dynamic processes accompanied by fast-moving power, thermodynamic, and stress-strain phenomena. An effective research mechanism is simulation modeling of the cutting process of a hard-to-machine material (including in the AdvantEdge software). The article presents an analysis of the results of simulation studies of the influence of the main parameters of machining (depth and cutting speed) on the formation of power, thermodynamic, and stress-strain (including residual) parameters formed during cutting of chromium-nickel alloy Inconel IN 718. This analysis allows us to conclude the feasibility of choosing cutting parameters to ensure the effective performance properties of products made of this material
