Brazing with Induction
Induction technology has proven to be valuable in the brazing process for many reasons. Firstly, rapid heading and precise heat control allow localized heating of components without significantly changing the material properties. Also, It allows for the brazing of materials such as aluminum and sequential, multi-alloy brazing, and soldering of close proximity joints.
Induction brazing is versatile and adaptable to unique production lines. As a result of our modular design philosophy, our equipment allows for the strategic arrangement of your facility. Induction brazing equipment simplifies the process of part fixturing which frees up operators’ hands and increases equipment lifespan.
Radyne offers a full line of cutting-edge Induction Brazing Equipment ready to integrate into your production line. Radyne Induction brazing systems eliminate flame from your production facility which reduces costs, creates a higher-quality braze joint, and improves safety. The systems can be configured for manual control or pre-programmed recipes. As a result, this increases repeatability and reduces operator training requirements. Radyne Induction brazing and soldering systems repeatedly provide clean, leak-free joints for a wide range of parts including fuel lines, heat exchangers, gas distributors, manifolds, carbide tooling, and more (See What is Brazing and Soldering).
Controlled Atmosphere Induction Brazing Systems
Special environments have been used increasingly for joining components by induction brazing. The use of reducing atmospheres or vacuums is required in the production of brazed assemblies that rely on controlled atmospheres to prevent the formation of oxides during heating. Radyne is able to option controlled atmosphere chambers for almost all of our brazing equipment.
Induction Brazing Equipment & Industries
Brazing is a very common joining practice across many industries. Radyne makes multiple induction brazing systems both versatile and specialized for the unique needs of these industries.
The HVAC and refrigeration industry relies heavily on brazing to join components ranging from manifolds to ducts and more. Radyne works closely with the HVACR industry to develop products that suit their needs.
Radyne’s innovative new Voyager™ Hand-held Induction System is designed for use in tight spaces or on large assemblies where it is more convenient to bring the coil to the part rather than the part to the coil. This system is popular throughout the HVACR industry for brazing manifolds, pipes, fittings, and fixtures.
the InductoVise is ideal for operations with low volume and high mix. The system acts as an adjustable induction coil allowing multiple sizes of parts to be heated without losing efficiency.
Although the Radyne FlexScan 12 is most commonly used for heat treating, it can also be configured for automated brazing applications.
The production of electric motors often involves brazing and soldering components. It is important that all joints remain consistent to ensure proper operation and long service life. Induction technology from Radyne makes these ultra-consistent and repeatable joins possible. Radyne induction technology is also much cleaner and more energy-efficient than other forms of brazing.
The Radyne Rotor Brazing System is designed to braze copper ring end caps onto rotor assemblies for large electric motors. The system can be scaled up or down depending on the size and weight capacity required.
The production of automobiles and commercial vehicles requires brazing or soldering in many different areas. As with all complex machines, the work must be performed consistently to avoid any premature failure. Induction technology from Radyne can provide this consistency as well as increased speed, energy efficiency, and cleanliness.
The Radyne Carousel Feed Brazing System is the ideal way to semi-automatically braze assemblies. The part fixturing is customizable and the system can accommodate multiple induction coils in order to braze multiple joins on an assembly at once.
The Radyne Fluid & Fuel Tube Brazing System is designed to braze fittings and fixtures onto long runs of tubing. This machine is often optioned with controlled atmosphere chambers to eliminate cleaning requirements.
Increase production capacity by brazing up to 10 joints at once.
Deliver unmatched quality with a built-in controlled atmosphere pneumatic press chamber.
