induction brazing stainless steel to steel

High frequency magnetic induction brazing stainless steel to steel process

HLQ team was provided with 2 different parts to be brazed in our test laboratory.

Objective: Induction Brazing of a 0.15’’/ 3.81mm stainless steel pin to a steel base.

Equipment:  DW-UHF-6KW-III handheld induction brazing system 

Industry: Appliances & HVAC


Steel hexagon (base 1’’/ 25.4 mm diameter; 0.1’’/ 2.54 mm wall thickness)

A stainless steel pin (0.15’’/ 3.81 mm)

Other Materials: 

All-purpose black brazing flux

Power: 1.43 kW

Temperature: 1400 °F/ 760°C

Time: 8 seconds


The two workpieces were carefully positioned together. All-purpose induction brazing black flux was added because it is ideal for high-temperature applications where rapid, localized heating is needed. The process of induction brazing was performed successfully within 8 seconds by using the  DW-UHF-6KW-III handheld induction brazing system, producing the induction heating power of 1.43 kW at 1400 °F/ 760°C.
