induction brazing alloy to wire
The goal of the test application is induction brazing alloy to wire, with the wire as short as possible.
- The first step of induction brazing alloy to wire, is to pre-tin the wires with paste using a torch.
- The alloys tips were cut as short as possible, and the brazing paste was placed on the contacts. (see figure 1)
- After preparing the wire, they were secured to the heater contacts which was going through the coil. (see figure 2)
- The induction unit was run for 4 seconds to complete the braze. (see figure 3)
Induction heating provides:
- 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, without the need for batch processing
- Safer than flame brazing
