INDUCTION SOLDERING
& BRAZING EQUIPMENT

Overview


Induction brazing & soldering equipment ideal for a wide range of applications

Induction soldering and brazing is the introduction of electromagnetic fields into metallic bodies in order to heat joints between components and melting an alloy with a lower melting temperature than the component parts. Induction soldering and brazing machines form higher-quality, air, and watertight joints with less oxidation and cleaning than joints made with flame heating technology. RDO offers induction soldering and brazing equipment that is ideal for a wide range of applications.

Induction brazing & soldering equipment

Our Induction Heating Models HU2000 and HU5000 are our newest models available in 2.0 and 5.0kW of power working in High Frequency (250kHz-1.0MHz). These systems are ideal for components requiring precision heat zones, soldering and brazing of small parts such as electronic components, and Radio Frequency (RF) connectors. The system comes standard with a compact heating head and can be configured with up to two heating heads. The model HU brings the future of advanced system controllability into the customers' hands today.

Model HFI 3kW thru 25kW with a 135-400 kHz frequency range, along with the DuraPower Series 5kW thru 25kW systems with a 20-400 kHz frequency range are used for the soldering and brazing of larger parts. With this piece of induction soldering equipment, the user can create multi-step heat ramp cycles, which will allow the user to bring the temperature up quickly, then lower the power/heat to allow the solder/braze alloy to properly flow without overheating the parts being joined. All machines & systems can also be controlled with infrared temperature controls for precise temperature control of the brazing/solder process.
