The 6 Fundamentals of the Brazing Process

We’ve said that a brazed joint “makes itself”—or that capillary action, more than operator skill, insures the distribution of the filler metal into the joint. But even a properly-designed joint can turn out imperfectly if the correct brazing process is not followed. These procedures boil down the brazing process to six basic steps.

Brazing Considerations

The key factors in making a decision in regards to metal-joining will boil down to the size of the parts to be joined, the thickness of the metal sections, configuration of the joint, nature of the base metals, and the number of joints to be made. Let’s evaluate each of these brazing considerations.
