The process of welding using metal
powder is known as brazing. In this method, the metal powder is mixed with a
neutral suspending agent and some flux materials to form a brazing paste. The
paste is generally applied to the joints by a brush or other applicators. The
joint is then heated to melt the powder and complete the brazing process.
Depending on the source of heat or the method
of heating, the brazing is classified in the following methods.
- Torch Brazing
- Vacuum Brazing
- Furnace Brazing
- Dip Brazing
- Induction Brazing
