The Influence of a Belt Furnace on the Brazing Process
"Brazing" refers to a process that joins metals together. By using a braze alloy or filler metal to unite individual pieces, a strong metallurgical bond is created without melting or changing the essential structure of the original materials. With proper technique, the connection between the metals is often stronger than the actual metals themselves, which ensures the longevity of the bond. While brazing is one of the oldest processes for joining metals, technological progress has opened the door for brazing other materials such as ceramic or glass together. Brazing is considered to be essential to many industries, including automotive, aircraft, aerospace, electrical, and more. Additionally, brazing serves four major purposes for electronics: mechanical, electrical, hermetic and thermal. Although there are different techniques for brazing, furnace brazing specifically allows for high rates of commercial-scale production.
