Study on a Novel Brazed Diamond Wire with CuSnTi Brazing Filler


Article Preview

Fixed-abrasive wires, such as electroplated diamond wires and resinoid diamond wires, employed for slicing ingots have the problems of high tool wear. A novel brazed diamond wire has been developed to overcome these problems. This paper investigates the effect of process parameters, including brazing temperature, brazing time and brazing filler composition, on the brazed diamond wire manufacturing with CuSnTi brazing filler. The 3D micro-video system was used to observe the brazed diamond wire surface. Tensile, bending and torsional test were carried out to evaluate the mechanical properties of brazed diamond wire. A brazed diamond wire with 3km length was fabricated with the optimization process parameters, which was successfully used to slice glass.
