The following report conducted with collaboration of the University of Halmstad and ABSandvik Coromant.The focus of the project is characterizing the surface topography of different surface treatmentvariants before and after chemical vapor deposition (CVD).As a part of improving the knowledge about the surface area characterization and accomplisha better knowledge and understanding about surfaces and its relation to wear of uncoatedWC/Co cutting tools The project initiated in February 2016 and end date was set to May2016.The methodology used in this thesis based on the statistical analysis of surface topographicalmeasurements obtained from interferometer and SEM by using Digital-Surf-MountainsMapsoftware.The finding from this thesis showed that Mean and Standard deviation method, Spearman’scorrelation analysis and Standard deviation error bar followed by ANOVA and T-test areeffective and useful when comparing between different variants.The thesis resulted in a measurement approach for characterizing different surfacetopographies using interferometer and SEM together with statistical analysis.Keywords: 3D-Surfaces Texture, CVD coating inserts, Interferometer, Spearman’s correlation andANOVA & T-test.
