The focus of this study is to clarify the effect of the interface edge shape on the bonding strength of ceramic to metal joint. Each silicon nitride to copper joint plate with arc-shaped free surfaces edge was produced by Electric Discharge machining (EDM). The interface edge shape was characterized by defining the edge angle as a configuration angle between the interface plane and tangential line at the arc edge of the bonded interface. Each joint was bonded at high temperature using thin braze metal under vacuum and slowly cooled. Good fit was achieved at each bonded face in this process. The dependence of the bonding strength on the edge angle was experimentally clarified in Silicon nitride to Copper joint with arc-shaped free surfaces. The result shows that changing the edge angle from right angle improves bonding strength since it decreases residual stress near the interface edge. The highest bonding strength appears at the specific interface where the fracture pattern changes. It also shows that secondary machining, which cuts both edges into optimum geometrical conditions after bonding, can improve bonding strength.
