Abstract: The present study alters the temperature characteristics during high-frequency induction brazing of diamond grits and investigates their effects on the properties of the diamond/brazing alloy interface. The high-frequency induction brazing was conducted in a vacuum using Ni-Cr as active filler alloy. An active temperature range was identified for the brazing of high-quality diamond tools. This temperature range, coupled with long heating time, favours the wetting of filler alloy to diamonds, and the chemical reactions and element diffusion at the diamond/alloy interface, but reduces the static compressive strength of the diamonds. If the temperature is slowly raised, the protrusion height and location of brazed diamonds can be more precisely controlled. Brazed diamonds with 30%-50% protrusion are optimal for cutting.

Keywords: diamond; Ni-Cr alloy; high-frequency induction brazing; interface.
