Induction Brazing Steel Tips

Induction Brazing Steel Tips with Hihg Frequency Heating System

Objective To heat a steel tip and shank assembly to 1300°F (704°C) within 3 seconds for brazing with induction heating instead of torch brazing.
Material 0.1” (2.54mm) diameter steel tip & shank, 0.07” (1.78mm) diameter braze ring
Temperature 1300°F (704°C)
Frequency 800kHz
Equipment DW-UHF-4.5kW induction heating system, remote heat station containing one 1.2 microfarad capacitor.
Process A two turn helical coil is used to braze the dental parts. The braze ring is placed at the joint area of the steel tip and shank. Black flux is applied to the joint area. RF power is applied for 3 seconds to heat the parts to the established target temperature and the braze paste flows evenly and consistantly.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• Fast, accurate, repeatable heat
• Ability to heat very small areas within precise production tolerances
• Better joint quality, reduced oxidation
• Increased production rates and reduced labor costs

Brazing Carbide Tool Tips With Induction

Brazing Carbide Tool Tips With Induction 

Objective: Attaching carbide cutters to a steel meat cutter impeller

Material carbide blocks; steel shank fitting

Temperature 1400 °F (760 °C)

Frequency 300 kHz

Equipment DW-UHF-30KW induction heating systems including: Induction heating coil Workhead: two-cap 1.0μF (Total 0.5 μF) Process The entire part is placed in a five-turn helical coil, the power is applied until the part is heated to the required temperature and a uniform heat pattern is achieved. The coil allows for easy fixturing and uniformity of heating between the carbide and the steel shank for a premium braze joint.


Precision: Due to the size of the induction coil, the process allows for precise placement of the carbides on the steel shanks

Economy: Power is consumed only during the heat cycle

Repeatability: joint quality is maintained in this repeatable process
