In the last post, we started to discuss what industries use brazing and why. However, having a full understanding of the various uses and applications for brazing aluminum, as well as other metals, can provide businesses an understanding of whether induction brazing may add value to their process. Here's part two of our guide that will explore additional reasons to consider brazing:
Economically Efficient For Complicated AssembliesWhile some heat treatment processes tend to be costly when it comes to complicated assemblies, brazing is known for its potential to save resources such as time and energy. Furthermore, multiple parts can be made at the same time using either bulk brazing procedures or indexed work stations with induction coils or torches.
"Brazing allows complex assemblies to be made by brazing together basic component parts in one simple operation. Instead of making a complex casting, the same assembly could be made by brazing readily available plate, bar and tubular structures together. Time and material can be saved that might otherwise be consumed in designing and manufacturing complex molds and castings, or in machining away base metal stock to achieve a certain required shape," writes W. Daniel Kay on American Welding Society.
Joins Even Large Surface Areas
Finally, brazing is a technique that allows large surface areas to be joined together. While adhesive bonding or soldering could have possibly been considered, brazing is typically the best technique to use for large surface area applications due to its corrosion resistance requirements working in tandem with its incredibly industrial and heavy-duty strength. Brazing works as a viable solution in many applications where other heat treatment methods simply cannot.
The efficiency of an induction heating system for a specific application depends on four factors: the characteristics of the part itself, the design of the inductor, the capacity of the power supply, and the amount of temperature change required for the application. When it comes to what industries need brazing, remember that these industries include transportation electrical, construction, medical, distribution, appliance, and more.
