Resistance Brazing System A

Product Overview
American Beauty offers the most advanced and complete line of resistance brazing systems available anywhere in the world. Here are just a few of the advantages that you will find with resistance brazing systems:
  • Braze Fast and Easy - Concentrated heat allows even beginners to reduce braze time many times over.
  • No Flame = No Problems - Nature of tool ensures compliance with facilities that ban open flame.
  • Improve Braze Joint Quality - Poor braze joints are often the result of insufficient heat throughout the joint,creating weak spots.
  • Eliminate Thermal Damage - Traditional brazing methods introduce too much heat into surrounding areas damaging critical components or adversely affecting previously completed joints.
  • Reduce Liability - Handpieces cool quickly; greatly reducing risks of burns or accidental fires.
  • Braze in Tight Spots - Versatile systems allow easy access to restricted areas.
  • Save on Maintenance and Consumables - Only consumable is electrodes, and they last for months on end.
