Brazing In Electrical

Brazing Design for Tight Tolerances and High Value Components

Electrical, High Purity Alloys, High Temperature Alloys

a braze joint you can trust

We understand that field failure means people are without energy or critical equipment goes down. Brazing may be a small component of most OEM processes, but failure can mean a large end scrap rate for you. Lucas Milhaupt’s vertical integration ensures we are able to monitor quality throughout the process.

Common applications for brazing in power management include: electrical applications such as vacuum interrupters, traveling wave tubes, fuses, and contact carriers and assemblies. Brazing these kinds of electrical equipment often requires high purity alloys and very tight tolerances for the packaging of high value parts.

Design Optimization Reduces Scrap

Step brazing is often the preferred brazing method for the small, sensitive components used within power management manufacturing. Talk to one of our brazing experts to reduce scrap and improve productivity today.


Reduce Precious Metal Alloy Use

Braze joints in electrical power management usually have high precious metals content. Improving joint design can reduce precious metal content and inventory. Whether working as part of your braze joint design team or optimizing your factory braze process, we offer unique solutions to reduce your precious metals content.
