Vacuum Brazing is a joining process which can offer significant advantages in terms of cleanliness, joint strength and integrity. The process is performed under vacuum with excellent temperature uniformity. This means that components can be treated using controlled heating and cooling which in turn reduces residual stress in the component. This controllability allows additional heat treatment processes to take place at the same time, which offers a unique, cost effective dual process that will reduce overall costs per component.
