Induction Brazing is where two or more parts can be joined by adding at the junction a lower melting point alloy, typically silver in ring form, in the presence of a flux to break down oxides and ensure wetting. The joint will fill by capillary action with the correct design of heat profile and gap geometry and for joints about 0.1mms wide the resulting assembly can be as strong as the parent metal
Benefits of using induction brazing include
- Local heating of the joint area gives minimal heat-affected zone and distortion.
- Precise and uniform heating gives high quality repeatable strong and leak-proof joints.
- Common metals joined including steel , stainless steel , copper and brass.
