Vacu Braze is an industry leader for the heat treatment and processing of implants, surgical tools, and other parts for the medical field. We designed our clean processing room as a keystone component of our new facility. The five thousand square foot area is climate controlled, clean, and specifically outfitted for precise and ultra-high vacuum processing. Our specialty furnaces and handling result in a super clean and precise heat treating process from start to finish. With a focus on medical components and implants, this addition to our facility has boosted our capacity and specialized services for existing and new customers. Vacu Braze is proud to support the medical industry with innovative and quick-turnaround solutions. Contact us to learn more.
Vacuum Heat Treating
Vacuum heat treating is a precisely controlled, environmentally-friendly process. The end result is a product that is clean and distortion-free.
Vacuum brazing is a joining process performed in an oxygen-free precisely-controlled environment. We use a wide range of brazing alloys to join base metals together with a strong inter-metallic bond.
Our approach to honeycomb brazing has resulted in a high degree of quality and compliance for our aerospace and power generation clients.
Atmospheric Heat Treating
Atmospheric heat treating is used to increase the hardness of an entire part or the outer surface of a part. It can also be used as a preventative measure of wear resistance.
Quick Batch Processing
As we grow and offer our services to critical industries, we realize some parts simply cannot wait. We are now offering expediting services to ensure you receive your parts as soon as possible.
Vacu Braze uses cryogenic treatments to reduce stresses and improve the wear resistance of your parts.
Precision matters most when it comes to high-cost materials. Vacu Braze has extensive experience heat treating a wide range of fastener materials and applications for critical applications.
Induction hardening is a form of localized thermal processing in which a metal part is heated with a coil and then quenched. This allows only a specific area to have different mechanical properties than the rest of the part.
Induction brazing is a form of localized thermal processing in which two metal parts are joined using a filler alloy of a lower melting point. By using induction, it is possible to braze one section of a part without impacting the mechanical properties of the rest of the piece.
Torch brazing is by far the most common method of mechanized brazing in use. It is best used in small production volumes or in specialized operations to join two types of metals together.
Nitriding allows us to increase the hardness of a component’s surface by enriching it with nitrogen.
Carburizing is a method in which carbon rich gasses are used to diffuse high amounts of carbon into the surface of a steel. This is commonly used to protect against abrasion or wear of the material by increasing its surface hardness.
Glass beading allows Vacu Braze to prepare workpieces, activate surface treatments, and ensure a clean, grease, oil, and scale-free part.
Our Metallurgical engineering team can work with you to ensure you choose suitable materials for your application, as well as assist in designing your part to ensure proper heat treating and brazing strength.
