Jans Inc. offers an array of brazing machines suitable for different purposes. Or we can custom build a brazing machine especially for your applications.
Jans Inc. is an expert in brazing.
Our brazing machines are becoming an international standard. Brazing uses a filler metal to join two solid piece of metal, so it’s similar to soldering or welding, only better. Since brazing does not heat the joint pieces themselves (as happens with welding), there is less distortion, resulting in a cleaner joint. Jans Inc. uses resistance brazing, where the device makes contact with both pieces of metal being joined and pulls them together before silver soldering them. Resistance brazing is an alternative to induction brazing, providing a similar result at a significantly lower cost.
Jans Inc. Brazing Machines
Jans Inc. lets you choose from four varieties of brazing machines that each address different uses and capabilities. At the bottom of every Jans Inc. brazing machine is a tank that houses coolant to be pumped through the leads and tongs, preventing overheating. Some models have air-cooled transformers, while others use coolant, depending on the size of the machine. All of our machines are portable and can be used for applications such as repairing transformers, wind generators, and subway car motors.
This is the smallest brazing machine in the Jans Inc. line. It features an air-cooled transformer. The leads and tongs are cooled using coolant from the base. It is typically used for connections in AC motors or for smaller connections in larger motors. view image
Also called the “Mark 2,” it’s larger than the 12KVA, so it can handle larger connections. The 70KVA is designed to silver solder rewind connections for traction motors, such as those found in trains and locomotives. The 70KVA uses one coolant pump to circulate coolant from the base through the transformer, leads, and tongs. view image
Larger than the 70KVA, the 100KVA is able to handle larger connections. Its two coolant pumps circulate coolant from the base through the transformer, leads, and tongs to prevent overheating. view image
This is the largest brazing machine in the Jans Inc. line. It’s able to handle larger connections than any of the other models. The 140KVA relies on four coolant pumps to circulate coolant from the base through the transformer, leads, and tongs. view image
Each brazing machine comes with copper tongs – they clamp onto the pieces of copper that are going to be solder in order to pull them together. The standard are straight tongs but there are several other options available including 45 degree, 90 degree, parallel opening, and pistol grip tongs. Tongs can also be custom made when needed.
