The article presents the results of studies on the dynamics of wear of five different cutting inserts (for machining difficult-to-cut materials, for finishing cast iron machining, for roughing cast iron machining, for steel machining and for stainless steel machining) during turning a non-homogeneous material such as polymer concrete. Polymer concrete is a difficult-to-cut, anisotropic, composite material. During the tests, a record of the components of the cutting force in real time was made. After each machining pass, the Ra and Rz surface roughness values were measured in the direction perpendicular to the machining marks and photos were taken under the microscope of the inserts corners, on the basis of which the width of major flank wear land and the width of minor flank wear land were measured. The view of each insert after the tests was also presented. Finally, the conclusions about the dynamics of wear of inserts taking part in the study as well as their applicability during polymer concrete turning were formulated.
