Taxonomy: Diffusion Bonding

Description

Diffusion bonding is a low-heat welding process that bonds metals through diffusion of atoms.

 

Overview of Process

Diffusion bonding is a welding process designed to be performed under pressure and low temperature (relative to other welding techniques). The metal pieces are heated to a temperature below their melting point, then pressed together for a long period of time. Over time, atoms diffuse into the joint and eventually fill in the gaps between the metal pieces, bonding them together.
