Induction Carbide Tipping

Objective
In this application test, induction carbide tipping of steel working head teeth.

Equipment
UPT-W15/150
HS-8 Heat Station
Custom coil


Materials
Steel working head teeth
• Brazing paste: BrazeTec 5600


Key Parameters
Power: 1.5 kW
Time: 10 seconds

Process:

  1. Brazing paste is put on the tool
  2. The steel working head teeth are attached.
  3. The assembly is positioned in the three-turn coil.
  4. The assembly is heated.
  5. The joint is completed in 10 seconds.

Results/Benefits:

  • Strong durable joints
  • Selective and precise heat zone, resulting in less part distortion and joint stress than welding
  • Less oxidation
  • Faster heating cycles
  • More consistent results and suitability for large volume production
  • Safer than flame brazing

Carbide Tipping is a specific brazing process by which a hardened tip material is applied to a base material to produce an extremely hard cutting edge. When using induction heating, the tipping material is brazed to the base material with temperatures up to 1900F.
