Centrifugal Sintering - Development of a New Pressure Sintering Process -
Centrifugal sintering is a novel process for the preparation of thick films. In this process, high gravity such as 104g is applied at high temperatures. Because of the distinctive measure of pressing by the centrifugal force, gradient of pressure arises in the specimen, resulting in the graded porous structure during the progress of sintering. After the sintering, highly densified thick films are obtained. Furthermore, crack formation was suppressed by this process.
