Induction Brazing provides precise control of all process variables yielding the most consistent results of any brazing process. A wide variety of materials can be brazed, including some combinations that typically cannot be welded. For smaller parts, brazing can be more economical than welding, and is often preferred for joining thin sections to thick sections because reduced heat minimizes distortion. Brazing is used extensively for joining many dissimilar material combinations. Inaccessible joint areas that could not be made by gas metal arc, gas tungsten arc, and spot or seam welding can be joined by brazing.
Soldering is a similar process to brazing except the melting point of the filler metal has a much lower temperate (Below 400 degrees).
