Brazing a steel coupler and a steel wire
Induction heating enabled the brazing process to be completed within 30 seconds. The client was using a torch, and induction offers superior repeatability with no open flame and delivering heat only where it's required...
Brazing brass tube and fitting assemblies
The brass tubes and fittings heated to required temperature far more quickly than with customer's torch method, resulting in improved part quality and introducing less heat into the production environment...
Brazing carbide tips to a steel cutter
The cutter was held in a vice and the coil was presented to heat the assembly. A ceramic rod was used to press the carbide tip onto steel cutter during brazing.
Brazing carbide insert to steel pipe gripper chuck
Induction heating is proposed to braze carbide inserts into steel blocks in the assembly of pipe gripper chuck. To replace a hand/flame process, delivering significant reduction in per-part cycles...
Brazing a stainless steel shaft to a carbide for a digger used in mining
A three turn helical coil is used to braze the carbide to the shaft. The steel shaft is fluxed and the braze shim placed on top. The carbide tip is fluxed and placed on top of the shim, lining up the countersunk hole in the carbide. The hole is not fluxed because the flux outgases and causes the carbide to build up pressure and attempt to repel from the shaft...
Braze a carbide tip to steel cutting tool
A split helical coil is used to heat the carbide & circular steel cutter evenly for the brazing application. The circular steel cutter is placed in a vise and the carbide and braze shim are placed onto the tooth...
Brazing a carbide and steel shank for a plug guage
Induction heating provides hands-free brazing which requires no special operator skills for manufacturing, precise, even heat is applied and is divided equally, between the shank and the carbide, providing an even flow of the braze alloy as the parts reach brazing temperatures.
Steel-carbide brazing cutting tool
The body shim and carbide are cleaned and braze flux as applied to the entire surface of the assembly. The parts are placed together in the induction coil.
Brazing Diamond Drill Inserts
Induction heating delivers reduced ring warping compared to furnace heating and decreased cycle time due to reduced ramp-up and cooldown times
shrink-fitting a carbide ring into a valve seat
A three turn helical coil is used to heat the steel valve seat. The steel valve seat is placed in the coil and heated for 50 seconds to enlarge the center hole & drop the carbide ring in for the shrink-fitting process.
Brazing a Steel and Carbide Assembly
To braze a steel and carbide assembly to create a mining bit for the oil and gas industry; the client is replacing their torch process with induction
