Medical Device Brazing Services

Medical device brazing is a joining process whereby a non-ferrous filler metal and an alloy are heated to melting temperature (above 800 degrees F) and distributed between two or more close-fitting parts by capillary action. With medical device brazing when the braze is at its liquid temperature, the molten filler metal interacts with a thin layer of the base metal, cooling to form an exceptionally strong, sealed joint due to grain structure interaction. With medical device brazing the joints becomes a sandwich of different layers, each metallurgically linked to each other. The most common filler materials are gold in color, but fillers that more closely match the color of the base materials can be used since appearance is important to the medical device brazing end product.
