A new white paper discussing the application of vacuum brazing has been launched by metal thermal processing and hard coatings specialist, Wallwork Group. Taking additive manufacturing as its reference, it argues that vacuum brazing is a here-and-now additive process that is highly adaptable to meet current challenging technical requirements whilst being totally repeatable, scalable and commercially attractive.
“Vacuum brazing is highly suited to the manufacture of complex components for aerospace, motorsport, medical, nuclear and other demanding fields,” asserts Peter Cookson, a vacuum brazing specialist at Wallwork and author of the paper. “With in-depth metallurgical expertise on hand we like to get involved at the earliest stages of design so that we can often optimise the component configuration, process and test procedures to meet multiple technical objectives. Using vacuum brazing we can frequently achieve time and cost savings compared to other fabrication methods,” he added.
The white paper is available as a download from the Wallwork web at www.wallworkht.co.uk/article/vac_braze_white_paper/. The company has Nadcap approved facilities for vacuum brazing at both Cambridge and Manchester and provides a nationwide collection and delivery service.
