Morgan Advanced Materials Increases Vacuum Brazing Capacity
The business has experienced enviable levels of growth in areas such as ceramictometal brazed assemblies and feedthroughs throughout 2015 and has launched a programme of capital invest ment to support the increased demand within the market. The investment delivered an increase in vacuum brazing capacity and takes place against a backdrop of increased use of vacuum brazing technology in the ceramic tometal brazing process as this enables a wider range of material options to be offered to customers. The new vacuum furnace will be used for molybdenum manganese brazing and metal lised ceramics to mating metal parts as well as active alloy brazing utilising Morgan’s extensive range of active braze alloys (ABAs). Products manufactured using this technology are used in a wide range of applications including electrical feedthroughs for analytical and medical systems, aerospace thermocouples and subsea connectors.
