Torch brazing is the most common form of brazing today, but requires a skilled operator. However many manufacturers are finding it harder to find experienced brazing operators and the open flame raises regulatory and safety concerns in manufacturing plants.
Furnace brazing is another widely used technique. Manufacturing companies today are looking to improve production efficiency, reduce manufacturing costs and replace energy and space inefficient furnaces while improving product quality.
Induction addresses the issues of torch and furnace brazing by removing the requirement for a skilled operator, by reducing energy costs and by decreasing the equipment footprint while implementing a lean manufacturing process for higher quality parts.
