Furnace brazing can be applied on a multitude of materials such as aluminium, titanium, nickel based alloys, stainless steels and alloy steels. Other non-ferrous materials such as copper alloys can be brazed.
The materials being joined dictate the type of atmosphere in which the assembly is heated to join its components. In addition to vacuum, protective or reactive atmospheres include hydrogen, nitrogen, a blend of hydrogen and other inert gases, exothermic and endothermic gas, as well as argon, and helium.
Furnace brazing is the process by which metal components are joined using a dissimilar lower melting material.
Furnace brazing is accomplished using a variety of techniques. They include different furnace designs, which include batch as well as continuous furnaces.
There are many types of furnace brazing, including:
- Active metal brazing
- Aluminium vacuum brazing
- Brazing under controlled atmosphere
- Honeycomb brazing
- Continuous/mesh belt brazing
- Reducing atmosphere brazing
- Repair/restorative brazing
- Vacuum brazing
The service is used to manufacture assemblies with one joint or several hundred joints, joined using a dissimilar lower melting material.
