Dip brazing is a process that allows simultaneous joining of multiple joints with different material thicknesses. An assembly first gets flux applied.
This keeps the filler metal in place while being immersed in the brazing salt bath. The form of filler alloy varies to suit the type of joint. As the filler metal starts melting, the flux dissolves into the salt bath. The alloy filler metal runs into the joint spaces, permanently bonding the pieces.
By quickly and evenly heating all of the components, the precision between parts is superior to welding.
Benefits of Dip Brazing
Material Savings. Unlike castings or machined parts, dip brazing can be done at near net size.
Low tooling cost. The dip brazing process uses little to no special tooling equipment. Using common fixtures allows Ben Machine to further lower tooling costs and set up times.
Less chance of product distortion. Dip brazing heats metals uniformly allowing for less risk of distortion compared to welding.
Uniform and timely. Because all joints of a component can be brazed simultaneously, the process produces components quickly and evenly.
Improved Structural Integrity. Dip brazing offers a continuous leak-tight and EMI shielded joint even with a variety of material thicknesses.
Better Conductivity. As the dip brazed joint is aluminum, conductivity is clearly better than that achieved with an adhesive bonded or mechanically attached assembly.
Design Freedom. The design engineer will enjoy a greater range of options using the dip brazed process.
