Summary

Internal channels in ceramics can be used to transport fluids for a variety of purposes including cooling electronic substrates. In this paper we discuss the machining of partially sintered ceramic oxides using a CNC controlled mill with cemented WC bits. After machining, the ceramics were densified and joined to other dense ceramics via conventional heating. By this method, complex multipass meso-scale channels have been fabricated in ceramic oxides.
