In one aspect, methods of making freestanding metal matrix composite articles and alloy articles are described. A method of making a freestanding composite article described herein comprises disposing over a surface of the temporary substrate a layered assembly comprising a layer of infiltration metal or alloy and a hard particle layer formed of a flexible sheet comprising organic binder and the hard particles. The layered assembly is heated to infiltrate the hard particle layer with metal or alloy providing a metal matrix composite, and the metal matrix composite is separated from the temporary substrate. Further, a method of making a freestanding alloy article described herein comprises disposing over the surface of a temporary substrate a flexible sheet comprising organic binder and powder alloy and heating the sheet to provide a sintered alloy article. The sintered alloy article is then separated from the temporary substrate.


A rotary tool comprising two coupling parts, namely a carrier and a cutting head in a front end surface. The carrier comprises a pin receptacle into which a coupling pin of the cutting head is inserted. In order to prevent pulling-out in an axial direction, stop surfaces are provided on the pin receptacle and on the coupling pin, said stop surfaces being effective in an axial direction. For a design that is as simple as possible, in particular with regard to grinding, each stop surface of the coupling pin is adjoined by a lateral surface which freely tapers off in the direction toward the end surface as viewed in the axial direction. In particular, the lateral surface constitutes a torque surface.


A tool coupling used for a clamping connection between two coupling parts, in particular between a cutting head and a carrier of a rotary tool, in particular of a drill. The coupling parts comprise clamping sections, which respectively correspond to one another and which can be clamped against each other by turning counter to a predefined direction of rotation about an axis of rotation so that a press fit is produced. In order to produce a high clamping force and at the same time allow for a simple installation via screwing in, each clamping section comprises several successive clamping surfaces whichwith respect to a cross section viewed orthogonally to the axial directionrespectively travel along a circular arc, wherein the diameter increases for clamping surfaces succeeding one another in the direction of rotation.

The invention relates to a rotary tool (2) designed in particular as a modular drill and extending in an axial direction (4) along an axis of rotation (6). The rotary tool comprises two coupling parts, namely a carrier (10) and a cutting head (12) that is exchangeably attached to the carrier (10). A pin receiving means (20) is provided on the carrier (10), into which pin receiving means a coupling pin (40) of the cutting head (12) is introduced in a clamping and reversible exchangeable manner. The pin receiving means (20) and the coupling pin (40) have clamping sections (32a, b) and torque sections (30a, b) that correspond to one another. In order to permit simple production, these clamping and torque sections are oriented parallel to the axis of rotation (6). In addition, in order to prevent pulling-out in an axial direction, stop surfaces (38a, b) are provided on the pin receiving means (20) and on the coupling pin (40), said stop surfaces being effective in an axial direction (4) and corresponding to one another. These stop surfaces are preferably horizontal and therefore perpendicular to the axis of rotation (6).

A setting system (20) for a tool (10) is described, and in particular for a rotary metal working tool, wherein the setting system (20) aligns at least one insert (14) of the tool (10). The setting system (20) comprises an adjusting unit (22), which cooperates with the insert (14), and actuating device (24), which includes at least one electric actuator (26) exerting an adjusting force on the adjusting unit (22). Furthermore, a tool (10) is described.

In one aspect, composite preforms for the repair of superalloy parts and/or apparatus are described herein. For example, a composite preform comprises a nickel-based superalloy powder component, a nickel-based braze alloy powder component and a melting point depressant component disposed in a fibrous polymeric matrix. The fibrous polymeric matrix can form a flexible cloth in which the nickel-based superalloy powder component, nickel-based braze alloy powder component and melting point depressant component are dispersed.

The rotary tool comprises a support and a cutting head which can be inserted into a pin receptacle of the support via a coupling pin. The support and the cutting head have mutually corresponding surface sections for transferring a radial clamping force and have mutually corresponding torque sections for transferring torque. For an axial pull-out stop device, effective stop surfaces are formed on the pin receptacle and on the coupling pin in the axial direction, wherein, to do this, a stop element is formed, the radial extension of which is smaller than or equal to a radial extension (r_(2)) of the surface sections of the coupling pin and wherein the stop surfaces and the surface section are offset relative to each other in the circumferential direction.
