Brazing is a process which consists in joining two metallic items by melting a filler metal used as a joint, such as copper, cobalt or nickel. This metal joining process takes place at high temperature, in a controlled atmosphere or under vacuum, to insure homogeneity and quality of the process.
There are several advantages when brazing. It is a profitable process that easily fits in metallic parts’ production. Also, the dilution of the metal to be joined is low since the filler metal should have a lower melting point than the adjoining metal.
Within ECM, we apply our vacuum furnaces’ technology to brazing. Temperature homogeneity and the absence of oxygen ensure the full mechanical integrity of treated parts and of oxidation sensitive assembly at high temperature. Our solutions are nimble enough to adapt to different kinds of atmospheres and required thermal profiles (heating speed, maintaining time, cooling speed).
Moreover, pieces can be treated by batch, which implies an increase of productivity and of profitability.
Finally, we offer solutions with transfer systems which limit moves during the solidification phase. This ensures a treatment of premium quality since it reduces distortions and internal stresses. Moreover, the ECM range fulfills the needs of laboratories as well as industrial lines requiring high capacities, which allows us to adapt to various production flows.
Our brazing solutions are dedicated to brazing under vacuum, inert gas or hydrogen.
