A Study on Vacuum Diffusion Bonding of as-Extruded AZ31 Magnesium Alloy
In this investigation a study on vacuum diffusion bonding of as-extruded AZ31 magnesium alloys was carried out according to atomic diffusion theory. The bonding quality of the joints was checked by microstructure analysis, shear test and micro-hardness testing. The results showed that the diffusion temperature and holding time had a great effect on the the bonding quality of the joints. The maximum of joint shear strength was 76.2MPa with the bonding temperature being 420°C and the holding time reaching 90min.
