Alumina multi-layer diffusion bonding is a bonding technology, which enables us to make unified alumina products by stacking thin alumina plates without the use of adhesives. With this technology, it's possible to make liquid mixing components with internal channels and complex external geometries that are difficult to make from one ceramic body.
Bonding sintered ceramics together avoids any distortion caused by shrinkage and provides greater dimensional accuracy than raw bonding (tolerance ranges from a few 10 microns / depending on geometry).

Internal channels can be formed by diffusion bonding of each alumina component with flow path patterns.
Example: liquid mixing component
By utilizing lamination technology, it is possible to create complex external shapes that cannot be machined by a single ceramic blank material.
