The use of CVD diamond films on cutting tools is an application of great interest due to their unique properties. Its use aims to increase tool life, in addition to get significant increases in speed machining due to the low coefficient of friction of the diamond. Therefore it desires the low cost-benefit ratio of the coating with synthetic diamond; on the other hand this technology has found difficulties. The goal of this project is to deposit adherent CVD diamond films on substrates of 304 stainless steel, high speed steel and hard metal (WC- TiC - Co), using a new technique of forming intermediate barrier, made by laser cladding process, the silicon carbide (SiC) will be the basic powder As part of the studies is proposed to use a binder in the sintered layer. Process of seeding with diamond powder will submit the samples. The reactor HFCVD (Hot Filament Chemical Vapor Deposition) will carry out the deposition of diamond films, with different concentrations of gases for microcrystalline and nanocrystalline films. The indentation and machining tests will evaluate the improve adhesion of diamond films on substrates. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) will characterize the samples for qualitative analysis of the diamond films. X-ray diffraction will identify the phase after laser cladding process. Raman Spectroscopy will calculate the compressive residual stress of the film. The test micro - scratching will measure the level of adhesion of the silicon carbide on the substrates. (AU)
