Open Innovation Portal

The 4M2020 Open Innovation Portal has been set up to assist the Micro and Nano Manufacturing Community to develop a pro-active, collaborative environment. The portal can be used to support the development of three types of collaboration. We invite you to submit information in the following categories for organisations that are: • Developing state-of-the art products and services and are providing their expertise to external organisations (Product and Services Offering) • Looking for specific expertise and capability from other organisations (Product and Services Sought) • Wishing to collaborate in new projects and are looking for potential partners (Partner Search)

Diffusion bonding is a process whereby two materials are pressed together at high temperature and pressure for a period of time sufficient for atomic diffusion leading to bonding. To facilitate this process, a filler material, such as nickel alloy, is used at the interface between the two materials. In this study, precision machining tools were fabricated using a polycrystalline diamond tip and WC-Co shanks via diffusion bonding with paste type and sheet type nickel alloy filler metals. Experiments were conducted to determine the bonding characteristics of the fabricated cemented carbide test specimens with respect to the metal filler type used, as well as the copula shape. The bonding joint was examined for uniformity and crack and void formation using an optical microscope and micro X-ray computed tomography. Our results indicated the presence of cracks near the junction for all conditions. The tensile strength of the bond was measured for WC-Co proportional test specimens using a universal testing machine with respect to the metal filler type and copula shape. The tensile stress results were similar among the samples tested; however, our results indicated that the pressure distribution of the bond played an important role in the resulting bond strength.
