Rapidly quenched Sm(CobalCu0.08Fe0.22Zr0.02)8.5 (Cu-/Fe-rich) and Sm(CobalCu0.05Fe0.10Zr0.03)8.5 (Cu-/Fe-poor) ribbons have been prepared by means of the melt-spinning technique. By applying an appropriate annealing procedure a microstructure similar to that of sintered magnets can be obtained. The energy dispersive x-ray microanalysis of the compositional dependence near the cell boundaries suggests a model for the profile of the crystal anisotropy constants responsible for the magnetic hardening. The Cu-/Fe-rich alloy shows a normal temperature dependence of coercivity with a negative temperature coefficient, but the Cu-/Fe-poor ribbons show a positive temperature coefficient in the temperature range from 400–700 K. The different temperature coefficients are discussed in terms of a pinning model. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
