Metal industry giant conducts experiments at MAX IV

Sandvik Coromant and Chalmers University of Technology teamed up to conduct experiments for increasing the product lifetime of metal cutting tools. With the help of the NanoMAX beamline at MAX IV, a team of scientists and R&D professionals will further study the atomic structure of the Titanium Aluminium Nitride (TiAlN) coatings. What makes metal cutting tools

Deciphering corrosion resistance of superalloys

To develop longer-lasting metallic materials for harsh operating conditions requires understanding of their surface composition, structure and properties. A Swedish research group investigated the surface chemistry and thickness of the protective native oxide layer of nickel superalloys at MAX IV’s FlexPES beamline.
