The Radyne Induction Soldering and Brazing product line offers standard solutions for brazing aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel, carbide and more.
Brazing and soldering involve fusion of a joining alloy between the surfaces of metal parts to be joined. If the metal surfaces are clean, intimate contact is established and the joining material alloys with each surface, forming a joint up on solidification during cooling.
Induction heating in brazing and soldering applications is readily adaptable to production line methods, permitting strategic arrangement of the equipment in an assembly line, and if necessary, heating by remote control. Frequently, induction brazing and soldering permits a reduction in the required number of part fixtures, with the result being minimum heating of the fixtures, providing for efficient heating at the joint areas, increasing their life and maintaining their accuracy in alignment of the components to be joined. Since operators need not guide the induction heating source, both hands are left free to prepare assemblies for joining.
Induction heating has proven to be a valuable aid in joining processes for many reasons. Among these is rapid heating and precise heat control. Rapid heating and precise heat control offers the possibility of localized heating for joining high strength components with minimal weakening and sequential soldering operations to be performed. Induction Soldering is frequently specified and offers a number of advantages including smooth, well-filleted joints of good appearance and high integrity.
Special environments have been used increasingly for joining components by induction soldering. The use of reducing atmospheres or vacuums is required in the production of soldered assemblies that rely on controlled atmospheres, preventing the formation of oxides on heating.
