Furnace Brazing and Resistance Brazing

With Furnace brazing, you can join simple or complex designs of one or multi-joint assemblies.  This semi-automated process created a metallurgical bond between metal components by using a dissimilar low filler metal.

Furnace brazing is flexible enough to join a wide range of metals, which include:

  • nickel-based alloys
  • stainless steel
  • carbon and alloy steel

If your application uses a non-ferrous material it can also be brazed.  This includes:

  • aluminum,
  • titanium, and
  • copper

Furnace Brazing vs. Resistance Brazing

In furnace brazing, parts are fixtured in brazing jigs, which are then fed through the furnaces under controlled atmosphere.  Brazing is done as an alternative to cold metal heading of rivets

In resistance brazing, parts are held under pressure between two hot electrodes, and the braze alloy melts and joins the contact material to its backing.

Benefits of Brazing Materials

  • Cost-effective
  • Duplicatable high integrity metal joining process
  • Joins of unweldable, dissimilar, and non-metallic materials
  • Brazing allows design and manufacturing engineers the opportunity to join simple and complex designs with one joint or several hundred joints

Common Furnace Brazing Applications

  • Aerospace components
  • Space applications
  • Industrial gas turbine components
  • Medical, scientific and general engineering components
  • Electronic devices
  • Automotive components
  • Nuclear components
  • Offshore & petrochemical components
