|Braze welding|

Baruzzi Saldature manufactures welded joints by manual and automatic braze welding, which is a fundamental process for heterogeneous joints, where the welding pieces are formed by different metals with a different melting temperature.

Braze welding doesn't bring the base materials to fusion, but brings them to a temperature which is lower than their melting point. Only the filler material is melt, and the temperatures involved are usually between 650 and 800 C.

Braze welding allows the joining of almost all metals and permits the realization of elastic and resistant joints. This process presents characteristics of autogenous welding and ordinary brazing: the first is the preparation of the borders, the material and the required equipment; braze welding characteristic is the use of a filler metal with a melting temperature which is lower than the base material one; it doesn't reach fusion but is only heated (as happens in autogenous welding).

Brazing, or capillary brazing is performed by Baruzzi Saldature with alloys for brazing containing cadmium and ecological alloys with cadmium absence.

Brazing is performed by fixing the base metal in order to leave a capillary space between the parts, then it is heated up to a lower temperature than its own melting but higher than the filler metal's temperature. Filler metal is put in contact with the base metal so that it melts and leaks between the joints, wetting them and forming the brazed joint. This joint is especially indicated to join lead, zinc, zinc iron, tin copper and tin-lead alloys.

Brazing are distinguished according to the lower o higher melting degree of the filler metal. Soft soldering are performed with a low melting temperature (<400C) welding alloy, while hard soldering are operated for joining metals and metallic alloys with a high melting temperature.
