Brazing Carbide Tips to Steel Shanks with Induction2020-09-15T13:10:20+00:00
Objective Application test objective is brazing carbide to steel, and confirm heating time. Customer provided samples of carbide tips of various sizes and shapes to be brazed to steel shanks of various sizes and shapes. Confirm brazing feasibility and heating times using Ultraheat UPT-S5 5 kW for brazing carbide to steel.
The magnetic steel shank and carbide were cleaned.
Paste alloy was added to the interface area between the shank and carbide.
Simple fixtures were used to hold the shaft in place, and hold the carbide in place.
Power was turned on, and the parts were monitored to confirm when the braze was complete.
All parts were brazed successfully, using the same coil and tap settings on the induction equipment. No equipment changeovers are necessary. A formal fixture to ensure the parts are aligned during the brazing process is recommended.
