Ceramic and Metal Brazed Assemblies

The brazing assemblies uses valveable materials or oxygen-free copper parts with a similar expansion coefficient to the ceramic parts and metallized ceramic parts to achieve sealing between the ceramic and the metal through brazing. The sealing parts can be argon arc welded with stainless steel, thereby Achieve air-tight connection between ceramic parts and metal structural parts.

Brazed Assemblies Company

Great Ceramic provides precision brazing of dissimilar materials such as metals and ceramics to create high-performance brazed assemblies. Skilled technicians and state-of-the-art facilities allow us to provide custom brazed parts for the most demanding applications.

Uses of brazed assemblies

Ceramic and metal brazing assemblies are mainly used in electron tubes, launch tubes, microwave tubes, traveling wave tubes, vacuum gauge tubes, accelerating tubes, trigger tubes, thyristors, X-ray tubes, CT tubes, high-voltage electrodes and other fields. Especially in the field of high-power, high-reliability packaged electronic products, it shows excellent performance.
