AM60 Carbide Grade from Sandvik Hyperion

New AM60 Carbide Grade for CVD Diamond Coating Blanks

Sandvik Hyperion’s new AM60 carbide grade is an advanced substrate developed to increase machining productivity and performance for applications requiring CVD diamond coating.

AM60New grade compromises the following benefits:

  • Maximizing the efficiency of machining composite materials such as Carbon-Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP)
  • Premium properties to ensure consistent and reliable CVD diamond coating of tools.

Sandvik’s new grade has been tested in aerospace applications to machine composite materials and has shown superior coat-ability and diamond adherence.

Additional evaluations on adhesion tests showed that the coating aspects, microstructure and thickness of AM60 coated round tool blanks are consistent and homogenous.
