Induction heating is the best method for brazing
Induction is a high throughput, no-contact heating method. It helps ensure strong yet barely visible joints—and the outstanding aesthetics expected by today’s customers.

7 compelling reasons why induction heating is better than flame brazing

Brazing produces strong, shock-resistant and visually attractive joints. But why select induction heating over flame brazing? There are at least seven compelling reasons:
1. Speedier solution
Induction heating transfers more energy per square millimetre than an open flame. Induction heating can therefore braze more parts per hour than alternative  processes. Rapid and precise heating results in less mass to be heated. There is less damage to surrounding insulation.

2. Quicker throughput
Induction heating is ideal for in-line integration. Batches of parts no longer have to be taken aside for separate brazing or sent off site.

3. Consistent performance
Induction heating is controllable and repeatable.Enter the desired process parameters and the  induction equipment will repeat the heating cycles. 

4. Unique controllability
Induction lets operators view the brazing process, something that is difficult with flames. This and precise heating minimize the risk of overheating. 

5. Better working environment
Open flames create uncomfortable working environments. Induction is quiet and clean. It is easy to extract fumes and there is virtually no increase in ambient temperature.

6. Compact footprint
EFD Induction brazing equipment has a small footprint. Induction stations slot easily into production cells and existing layouts. Our compact, mobile induction heating systems let you work on hard-to-access parts.

7. No-contact process
Induction heating produces heat within the base metals— and nowhere else. Unlike flame heating the base metal never comes into contact with the heat source. The homogeneous and controlled heat minimizes distortion, and there is no danger to create hydrogen embrittlement.
