Teaser Flame Brazing Welding & Cutting
During flame soldering, a fuel gas/oxygen flame is used. Unlike gas welding, the surface of the joint partners is not melted but only heated to just above the melting point of the filler material.
Teaser Arc Brazing Welding & Cutting
Metal shielding gas soldering is similar to MAG welding. An endless wire electrode, the solder, is fed to the arc by a wire conveyor and melted under a shielding gas jacket. The shielding gases have different properties depending on their composition, and therefore different effects on the solder result.

The traditional joining process
During flame soldering, a fuel gas/oxygen flame is used. Unlike gas welding, the surface of the joint partners is not melted but only heated to just above the melting point of the filler material. The filler, which is usually a wire, is added whilst being continuously heated and melted. A small gap should be maintained between the joint partners into which the filler can flow (capillary effect). A fluxing agent improves the wetting between the components and the filler.
Depending on the working temperature there is a difference between soft-, hard-, and high-temperature soldering.
