Measurement of Forces in Shearing Brazed Diamonds
In order to assess the bonding of brazing alloys to diamonds, an investigation was conducted to measure the forces while shearing brazed diamonds. A device was designed to shear diamonds and shearing forces were recorded under different brazing parameters. The morphologies of diamonds were followed before and after shearing. It is found that the shearing force reduces with the increase of grit protrusion height. For specific grit protrusion, shearing forces decrease with the increase of holding time in brazing.
