Fusion automation equipment is custom built for your application and enables one operator to turn out hundreds of joints per hour. Typically, parts are loaded into stainless steel fixtures which maintain proper alignment throughout the brazing or soldering cycle. The fixtured parts (assemblies) are then conveyed through a closely-timed sequence of paste alloy application, heating, and cooling. Assemblies made of steel, stainless, copper, brass, and aluminum can all be joined on automatic brazing machines. Automation equipment can employ various heat sources such as torch, flame, acetylene, gas/air, induction, resistance, infrared, oven, and furnace. Brazing machines produces strong, sealed, leak-proof joints. Automation equipment uses filler metals in solid form (such as rings and wire, slugs, washers, powder) as well as paste.
Brazing machines automate metal applications, yielding reduced labor costs, lower reject rates, improved product quality, without “human error”. Rotary or dial index automation equipment can braze or solder 200 to 2,000 parts per hour. Single station and in-line conveyor brazing systems are also available. Timed heat control and multiple torches are part of the brazing system. Automation equipment use filler metals in solid form, like rings and wire, slugs, washers, powder, and paste.
