There are many reasons why using induction heating instead of gas for brazing is clearly beneficial. Induction transfers more energy per square meter than an open flame, resulting in faster heating cycles—put simply, you produce more components per hour in a very repetitive process.
The heat is also easy to check and adjust. You reduce the risk of overheating, which can lead to higher porosity and weaker joints. What’s more, you reduce the risk of cold brazing as induction generates the heat in the base material. The union does not require much cleaning as it generates little oxidation and eliminates distortion or undesirable metallurgical changes elsewhere in the piece. Induction brazing can also be performed with inert gas atmosphere when necessary to keep the piece free of rust.
