Advantages of bercoweld® wires for brazing and welding
bercoweld® wires for brazing and welding offers significant advantages. The automotive industry has impressively demonstrated how galvanized sheets can be joined with copper wire without the need for costly reworking. Here, so-called tailored blanks, tailor-made components made from thin sheets of different qualities are laser, hard or high-temperature brazed with bercoweld®. Subsequent treatment and galvanizing of the joint seam are no longer necessary, but the corrosion protection remains intact. This allows enormous cost and energy savings. The advantages of brazing with copper alloys at a glance:
- Optimal gap bridging
- Low joining temperatures
- Low energy consumption
- Low heat penetration reduces distortion of the base material
- No galvanizing of the joint required
In terms of numbers, working with copper brazing wires can result in savings of up to 30 percent in manufacturing costs compared to conventional steel wires. We can look similarly at energy demand: The savings potential here is up to 20 percent. In the context of rising energy prices, in particular due to the imminent taxation of CO2emissions, this area is of particular importance.
bercoweld® brazing and welding wires are available in all common designs: Spools (plastic or wire basket), barrels, rods, and rings. Upon request, rods are also available in embossed versions – even in the smallest batch sizes and in special alloys according to customer requirements.
With the innovative bedrabox you can further increase your productivity. If you opt for bercoweld® from the innovative bedrabox, the high filling quantity and continuous wire run-off speed mean that the time-consuming work of changing spools is no longer necessary. So downtimes in production can be enormously reduced.
