Induction Heating and Heat Treatment
Design and Fabrication of Inductors for Heat Treating, Brazing, and Soldering
Inductors used for brazing can be machined from solid copper shapes or fabricated out of copper tubing, depending on the size and complexity of the braze joint geometry to be heated. This article provides information on inductors (coils) that are generally classified as solenoid, channel (slot), pancake, hairpin, butterfly, split-return, or internal coils. It discusses the variables pertinent to the design of inductors for brazing, soldering, or heat treating. The article presents various considerations for designing inductors for brazing of dissimilar materials that present a unique challenge in the field of induction brazing.
