About Induction Heating
Is induction good for brazing dissimilar metals?
Mixed material induction brazing
Induction brazing is an excellent method of joining parts made of dissimilar metals. Applications with mixed metal joining include steel-to-copper, steel-to-brass and brass-to-copper. With these materials, it’s all about timing. For a successful brazed joint between different metals it is critical that both metal surfaces reach the braze flow temperature at the same time as the joint. The induction heating solution must take into account the different thermal conductivities of the materials, and the time each material takes to get to temperature.
