While traveling across the United States to various trade shows this year eldec staff met with show attendees from industries ranging from aerospace, automotive and power generation to assembly, electric motor manufacturing and more. During these discussions five misconceptions about induction brazing were mentioned. We'd like to set the record straight.
- Induction brazing is the same as welding. No, it is NOT the same as welding. "What is the difference between induction brazing and welding?" explains why.
- Induction is difficult to use because the coils are fix-mounted, making hand brazing difficult. Nope, not true. Brazing by hand has never been easier. Read more.
- Induction brazing is difficult to automate. For some companies, maybe, but the induction heating experts at eldec make automating the process look easy. Watch the video.
- Induction is too expensive. We hear this argument a lot. While induction brazing equipment is typically an expensive initial investment, it pays off in the long run – especially for high volume projects. In fact, there are seven reasons why investing in induction equipment is worthwhile.
- Induction coils only come in standard shapes and sizes. File this argument under Pants on Fire. eldec's induction coils are custom made for each project. They come in a virtually limitless variety of shapes and sizes. Learn more about custom made inductors for complex parts.
