At the 2012 International Brazing and Soldering Conference (IBSC), Craig Moller, Chief Engineer at Ipsen, will present two papers on brazing: ‘Aerospace Aluminum Brazing and Compliance’ and ‘Vacuum Aluminum Brazing – What Matters Most’.
The event will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 22 to 25 and will be hosted by American Welding Society (AWS) and American Society for Metals (ASM).
The paper, ‘Vacuum Aluminum Brazing – What Matters Most,’ will mainly focus on braze joint fundamentals, the vacuum brazing process and the advantages of vacuum brazing. Vacuum aluminum brazing process perfectly balances three important factors: vacuum level, temperature and time. These factors are controlled to retain the basic parameters of brazing, which include loading of the parts, heating the parts, cleaning the braze joints, melting the braze filler and removing the parts out.
In addition, Craig Moller will discuss about the necessary guidelines and checklists that are important to the Aerospace industry. The topics that will be covered in the ‘Aerospace Aluminum Brazing and Compliance’ paper include Temperature Uniformity Surveys (TUS), System Accuracy Testing (SAT), furnace classification and clarification of AMS 2750D and Nadcap.
The IBSC exposition will display the latest trends, products and technologies in the brazing and soldering industry. The event will include educational short courses and a three-day technical program, which will focus on the recent advancements in the brazing and soldering technology.
