Vacuum Brazing

Vacuum Brazing is a joining process which can offer significant advantages in terms of cleanliness, joint strength and integrity although a third metal is introduced which is not always ideal if only parent metal compositions are allowed for the application.

The process is performed under vacuum with excellent temperature uniformity. This means that components can be treated using controlled heating and cooling which in turn reduces residual stress in the component. This controllability allows additional heat treatment processes to take place at the same time, which offers a unique, cost effective dual process that will reduce overall costs per component.

Advantages

  • Joint strength
  • Maintains base material properties
  • Cost effectiveness (per part)
  • Dissimilar materials joined
  • Clean (no flux residue)
  • Void free and leak proof
  • Multiple joint processing
  • Improved quality
  • Multiple processing
