BRAZING

Our vacuum furnace solutions are offered with transfer systems that limit movement during the solidification phase. This ensures a premium quality treatment by reducing distortion and internal stresses. Moreover, the ECM range fulfills laboratory needs, as well as, industrial lines requiring high capacities - which allows us to adapt to various production flows and meet your process specifications.

Our brazing solutions are dedicated to brazing under vacuum, inert gas or hydrogen.

Vacuum brazing involves the joining of two or more metal components using a filler material, or braze alloy, with a melting point lower than that of the base metals. The process takes place in a vacuum furnace, where the absence of oxygen prevents oxidation and ensures a clean joint. Key principles of vacuum brazing include capillary action, which allows the molten braze alloy to flow into the joint through the narrow gap between the mating surfaces, forming a metallurgical bond upon solidification.

Brazing with low pressure vacuum furnaces by ECM is a profitable process that easily fits in metallic parts production. Temperature homogeneity and the absence of oxygen ensure the full mechanical integrity of treated parts and of oxidation sensitive assembly at high temperature. Our solutions are apt to adapt to different atmospheres and required thermal profiles (heating speed, maintaining time, cooling speed). Moreover, pieces can be batch heat treated to increase productivity and profitability.

  • CLEAN JOINTS: absence of oxygen prevents oxidation; clean & oxide-free joints
