High Frequency Induction Brazing Copper Wire

High Frequency Induction Brazing Copper Wire

Objective
High frequency induction Braze a 5.3 sq mm (10 gauge) and a 0.5 sq mm (20 gauge) copper wire using induction with an open C-coil.

Equipment
DW-UHF-6KW-III handheld induction brazing heater
Open C-coil
Flexible Leads

Handheld induction brazing heaterMaterials
• 10 gauge (5.3 sq mm) copper wire
• 20 gauge wire (0.5 sq mm) copper wire
• Brazing alloy
• Brazing flux

Test 1

Power: 2 kW
Temperature: 815° C (1500° F)
Time: 42 sec

Test 2

Power: 2 kW
Temperature: 815° C (1500° F)
Time: 38 sec

Test 2

Power: 4.86 kW
Temperature: 815° C (1500° F)
Time: 10 sec

Results and Conclusions:

Brazing the two types of copper wire is possible with the DW-UHF-6KW-III handheld induction brazing System with 1m (3.3 ft) flexible leads and an open C-coil. For even faster braze times, a DW-UHF-10kw induction System is recommended.
