Laser Brazing of Diamond Grits with a Ni-Based Brazing Alloy
Brazing diamond grits onto steel substrate using a Ni-based filler alloy was carried out by laser beam in an argon atmosphere. The microstructure of the interfacial region among the Diamond grits, the filler layer and the steel substrate, were investigated by means of scanning electron microscopes (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). Meanwhile, the formation mechanism of carbide layers was discussed. All the results indicated that the active element chromium in the Ni-based alloy concentrated preferentially to the surface of the grits to form a chromium-rich layer, and the hard joint between the alloy and the steel substrate is established through a cross-diffusion of iron and Ni-based alloy.
