On the Defects in Injection-Moulded Technical Ceramics

Abstract:

Article Preview

A heated sprue device for ceramic injection moulding was used to research the defects in injection-moulded technical ceramics. By use of the heated sprue device, the problem of sprue solidification was resolved and the density of the injection moulding specimens was increased while the defects eliminated. The influence of the processing parameters on the defects of the injection molding specimens was investigated in detail by X-ray radiography camera and photograph. It turns that the sprue solidification time has much influence on the defects in injection-moulded technical ceramics. Reasons causing the results above were also analyzed. Based on the research, bars of 20mm in diameter without macroscopic defects and turbine blade of fine property with Si3N4/SiC(w) materials were prepared by injection moulding.
