Micro Pattern Making Method on AlN-hBN Composites Using Powder Blasting Process


Article Preview

In this study, micro patterns were formed on the developed AlN-hBN composites using powder blasting techniques, which have been considered as one of the most appropriate micro machining methods for hard and brittle materials such as ceramics. To achieve the objective, first, material properties of the developed AlN-hBN composites were evaluated according to the variation of h-BN contents. And, a series of required experiments were performed, and the results were analyzed. As the results, it was investigated that the machiniability of the developed AlN-hBN composites increased with the increase of the h-BN contents in the composites. From the experimental results, it was possible to determine optimum blasting conditions for micro pattern making on the developed AlN-hBN composites.
