What is flame soldering and what are its advantages?
Flame soldering is a thermal joining process for metallic materials that are connected with a solder during this method. The thermal energy required for this procedure is generated by burning gas in a burner. The flame melts the solder, which then connects with the material. Flame soldering is used both for manual work and in machines. With automatic flame soldering, several burners, so-called flame field burners, are used.
- Simple equipment handling
- Good regulation of the heat supply
- Effective shielding of the solder joint through the flame
- High degree of mechanisation
