A Fast and Low Temperature Eco-Process for Alloy's Joining
In this paper, we suggest PCH as a method of joining alloys. The temperature distribution in the samples during the joining process was analyzied. From the temperature distribution profiles in PCH joining, it is concluded that PCH for the joining has two advantages: (1) There is a temperature distribution peak along the sample. The contacting surfaces which need high temperature happen to obtain the highest temperature; (2) The parts to be joined at relatively lower temperatures can avoid the damage of heat attack. The optimal joining conditions were discussed. The PCH and HP techniques were compared for the joining of alloys. It was found that the high tensile strength joined structure of alloys can be fabricated by PCH method at lower joining temperature, shorter holding time, and lower pressure, compared with that by HP method. The PCH process was considered to be an eco-friendly process compared with the traditional heat diffusion joining methods.
