How Induction Carbide Tipping Works

Improve your carbide tipping process without flame! Make the process of tipping and brazing carbide inserts efficient and safe. Consider induction heating.

You don't need a torch or a costly batch or furnace process. Carbide-tip your materials in a repeatable, precise flameless process. Induction is ideal for your carbide heating process, combining the precision, control, economics and safety inherent in the technology.

Brazing a stainless steel shaft to a carbide for a digger used in miningBrazing 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...

About Induction Heating

Induction heating is a fast, efficient, precise and repeatable non-contact method for heating metals or other electrically-conductive materials. The material may be a metal such as brass, aluminum, copper or steel or it can be a semiconductor such as silicon carbide, carbon or graphite. To heat non-conductive materials such as plastics or glass, induction is used to heat an electrically-conductive susceptor, typically graphite, which then transfers the heat to the non-conducting material.
