Induction Carbide Tipping
In this application test, induction carbide tipping of steel working head teeth.
HS-8 Heat Station
• Steel working head teeth
• Brazing paste: BrazeTec 5600
Power: 1.5 kW
Time: 10 seconds
- Brazing paste is put on the tool
- The steel working head teeth are attached.
- The assembly is positioned in the three-turn coil.
- The assembly is heated.
- The joint is completed in 10 seconds.
- 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.
