The Braze Mate 100LS is designed for medium-volume brazing and soldering applications or short runs of various parts. The two-station machine offers automatic, timed heat control with multiple torches attached to a retractable arm. The machine handles between 40 to 70 parts per hour.
Operators load a part into a stainless-steel fixture mounted to an 18-in.-diameter dial plate. Fusion-paste alloy is applied to the joint area with a handheld device. The operator manually rotates the dial 180° to a locked position, activating the heat cycle and positioning the burners in the heat zone. Oscillating burners eliminate “hot spots” at the assembly-joint area.
When the joining temperature is reached, the torches retract into idle position, followed by an air and water-cooling cycle. The operator then rotates the dial plate 180° to the load/unload station. During heating/cooling phase, a second fixture can be loaded and pasted.
