Industrial Brazing Furnaces

Furnace brazing is a semi-automated process used to join metal components with a dissimilar, lower melting filler metal. It allows designs of one or multi-joint assemblies to be joined by a reproducible metallurgical bond.

Brazing Furnaces were first commercialized in the early 1920’s.  Furnace-brazed parts are heated to a specific brazing temperature until the filler metal flows. The parts are then cooled or “quenched,” usually in a different zone of the furnace, or in a separate chamber, to produce the required material properties in the finished assembly.

Brazing Furnace capabilities and advantages include:
• Multiple joints on the same assembly can be brazed simultaneously
• Gravity or minimal fixturing is sufficient making complicated jigging typically unnecessary
• Undesirable atmosphere constituents can be controlled or eliminated
• Multiple atmospheres or chambers make various types of processing operations possible
• The process is highly repeatable, ideally lending itself to automated production
• Brazing furnaces usually do not require chemical fluxes
• Little to no post-braze cleaning is required
• Provides close temperature control, for optimum and uniform results

Industrial brazing furnaces from Abbott Furnace Company are continuous process and custom designed for a variety of processes and to meet each customer’s unique specifications.
