Advanced metal–ceramic joining techniques for orthopaedic applications

G. Sala,     Aerospace Engineering Department, Italy

Abstract:

The types of metals and ceramics to be joined, their application, features and characteristics are preliminarily summarized. The main challenges are pointed out and discussed, possible solutions envisaged. As a consequence, general methods for joining metals to ceramics are presented. Their strong and weak points and possible outcomes are presented. The so-called direct bonding methods are discussed, in particular solid-phase, non-fusion welding. Strengths and weaknesses of techniques and materials are considered, as well as further concerns such as biocompatibility, thermal/chemical performances and long-term ...
