During operation, sterilization and disinfection, the surface working part of dental burs deteriorates. In this study a commercial metallic dental bur with extra coarse gradation (177-250 μ of ceramic embankment), made of a stainless steel were covered with a nickel-diamond composite was examined. The working part of the tool is round-end taper shaped and is intended for crown and bridge preparation. Analysis of microstructure was carried out using Jeol JSM-6610 LV scanning electron microscope with EDX analyzer. After 3 months of operation, the bur can be used for further work in the dental surgery.
In the aerospace industry, passenger safety depends on proper quality control at each production stage. The main responsibility for the correct operation of the aircraft lies within a gas turbine. A proper and rigorous selection of the gas turbine construction material is required, and in a further step, the method of joining the construction parts. Nickel superalloys due to the high heat resistance, strength and creep resistance at high temperatures, toughness and corrosion resistance, are very often used for the construction of a gas turbine engine. In the next step, the selection of joining method is necessary. This method must be able to achieve high-quality connections, resistant to work at high temperatures and corrosive environments. The most effective bonding method that meets the above conditions is brazing. In this study non-destructive (visual) test and destructive (metallographic) test of brazed joint of Inconel 718 and Inconel 625 were conducted.
Increasingly, many conventional and advanced automotive coatings applications demand materials with well-defined surface properties, fulfilling specific requirements and affecting automotive industrial development. The main assumption for the study was to analyze the microstructure and adhesion of epoxy powder coating on a steel substrate. The results of optical microscope metallographic, SEM/EDX, XRD analysis and adhesion test are presented.
