We are manufacturers of critical components found at the heart of complex machines.

We’re a trusted AS9100 certified company in brazing services. Our fully-equipped facilities with nine vacuum furnaces (including three aluminum vacuum brazing furnaces and three cold wall hydrogen brazing furnaces) provide superior quality and value while meeting our clients’ unique project demands. Our Nadcap-accredited furnace brazing capabilities include active metal brazing of ceramics, refractory and reactive metals, including copper. We’re proud to offer Nadcap-certified vacuum furnace brazing services, vacuum aluminum brazing and hydrogen brazing, with independent furnace calibrations and uniformity surveys to AMS 2750E.

We serve many diverse industries – including defense, aerospace, automotive, mining, and more – by developing a customized project plan to meet your specific heat treatment requirements. Our Nadcap-accredited vacuum heat treating services deliver high quality, cost-effective solutions for critical projects. Our processes range from age hardening and atmosphere heat treating to a range of vacuum heat treating approaches; our team’s experience means we can work to our clients’ precise specifications, no matter how demanding.

California Brazing’s in-house managed services for turnkey manufacturing range from prototyping and production design to manufacturing components, assembly, testing and supply-chain management. With our technical expertise, creativity, and attention to detail, we can solve the most complex, precise manufacturing challenges. Your company can out-pace the competition, supported by our decades of expertise in lean, Nadcap-certified manufacturing operations and logistics. It’s this deep knowledge of critical outside processes which ensures uniformly high quality products with a fast transition time from production to market.

Our fully equipped, state-of-the-art CNC machine shop is designed to help streamline our client’s various manufacturing processes, which reduces costs and improves quality while also providing quick turnaround times. We machine aluminum, copper, stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, titanium and refractory metals, using software from Solidworks and MasterCAM. Our horizontal machining cell includes a 27, 12, 7 and a new 15 pallet system. High speed milling up to 48k RPM with horizontal machining work envelopes up to 26 inches cubed and vertical machining work envelopes up to 62″ x 40″ x 60.”

We have expertise in developing thermal management devices for highly specialized systems. We have experience with liquid-cooled and air-cooled cold plates and heat exchangers for a broad range of products, including lasers, radar-EMR, power supplies, alternative energy technologies and more. California Brazing has developed heat sinks, cold plates and thermal management systems for defense and aerospace, energy and power, alternative energy, medical, and semiconductor industries.

With a focus on electronics cooling and thermal management, we perform braze joint, thermal, and flow examination. Design verification and analysis services include mass spectrometer helium leak testing, burst and proof pressure testing, and flow and pressure drop testing. Brazed joint and heat treat verification includes hardness testing, tensile testing and metallography testing. NDE testing includes ultrasonic and radiography testing. We also perform expert material selection and ensure all component designs offer seamless manufacturability.

California Brazing & Nevada Heat Treating are AS9100 certified companies, using the ISO9001:2008 quality system model, as well as being Nadcap accredited.
