In this investigation turning and milling tests were undertaken to quantify the performance of diamond coated cutting inserts. The diamond coatings were manufd. using a hot filament CVD unit. The workpiece materials are AA6082 and A356 both contg. 18% SiC, and AA7075 which contained 13% SiC. In both machining tests the diamond film gives excellent wear resistance and thereby increases tool life tremendously, revealing its great potential for industrial use
