Abstract

The present study compares the sintering response of 90W-7Ni-3Fe alloys consolidated in a 2.45 GHz microwave furnace and a conventional furnace. The W-Ni-Fe compacts were sintered in a temperature range of 1200-1500 °C corresponding to solid-state as well as liquid phase sintering. The compacts were successfully sintered in a microwave furnace with about 80% reduction in the overall processing time. For both the heating modes, the W-Ni-Fe alloys exhibited significant densification prior to melt formation through solid-state sintering. The in situ dilatometric studies revealed that the contribution to densification from solid-state sintering is higher at lower heating rates. In comparison to conventional sintering, microwave sintered compacts showed relatively refined microstructure and higher hardness and flexural strength.
