Induction Brazing: the Ideal Metal Joining Method

Oct 19, 2015 7:32:00 AM / by Justyna Bakker

Brazing is a way of joining two metals. Usually, brazing requires the use a a filler material, for example flux, that melts and wets the surface of the metals. Sounds all very easy, but brazing is all about precision. That is, the temperature of the flux has to be lower than the melting point of the metals to be joined. And, when we say precision, we mean: you need induction heating for your brazing process. And here is why...

1. Throughput

Induction brazing delivers the heat to the joint area only. This feature creates a perfectly brazed joint, which also improves the visuals. This is very important for for instance automotive manufacturers.

2. Efficiency & Footprint

Brazing with induction is fast, energy use is minimal and your output increases in high volumes. Need we say more?

3. Safety

Induction brazing dosn't expose the employers to open flames, unlike the ovens or torches. Induction heating localizes the heat precisely at the brazing area, which doesn't affect the outside temperature. It contributes to a pleasant working environment and the health of the personnel.

4. Versatility

Last but not least, it is perfect for copper, brass, aluminum or steel. And, you can easily braze two different materials, because the process is controllable.
