While a precise forecast of a part’s size change during heat treating cannot be expected, by considering potential factors, a heat treater can provide a reasonable estimate that can help the shop prepare for final machining operations….
Vacuum aluminum brazing is a careful balance of time, temperature, and vacuum level. These parameters are controlled to maintain the fundamental brazing success parameters – load the parts, heat the parts, get the braze joints clean, melt the braze filler, and get the parts out. This is done in a specific work environment utilizing sophisticated controls to insure fast pumping…..
