Soldering & Brazing for Carbide
Carbide is a very common material used by manufacturing companies for industrial machinery, such as saw blades, lathe bits, burrs and carbide line wear tools. This material is made of equal parts tungsten and carbon atoms and favorably used because of its high strength and toughness.
Before carbide is shaped into a saw blade or a burr, the raw blank must first be brazed to a saw blade, steel shaft or a sleeve. RDO Induction provides induction heating power supplies for the brazing of carbide blanks to a wide range of industrial tools.
Induction heat has the advantages of providing speed, accuracy and repeatability within a safe environment. With proper fixturing, each part is identically positioned in the induction coil and the braze alloy is carefully applied and regulated. A well designed induction coil will consistently and quickly deliver a precise amount of heat to a small area. The induction heating power supply’s internal timer can be used to control cycle time or a temperature control feedback for each individual part can be provided with Infrared Pyrometer control systems.
Heating & Brazing Equipment for Carbide
The DuraPower series Induction heating systems range from 5-25kW output power and 20-400kHz frequency ranges that are used for brazing medium to large carbide tools.
The Model HFI series delivers 3kW to 25kW of power with a 135-400kHZ frequency range that is used for brazing small to large carbide tools. The on-board microprocessor allows for the user to program a heat ramp cycle, reducing the systems output power as the material comes to braze temperature, so that the carbide does not overheat during the braze cycle.
The HU Series is ideal for precise heating and brazing of smaller carbide tools, such as carbide tipped saw blades and available in 2kW and 5kW.
