    A push towards flux-free aluminium brazing

    Gränges Sweden AB
    Nov 2018 - Feb 2020

    Gränges customers assemble aluminium sheets through brazing using braze clads, a fast and convenient assembly method. The technique used is called controlled atmosphere brazing, a procedure where brazing is performed in a furnace with nitrogen at temperatures around 600ºC. A crucial step preceding brazing is the removal of the surface oxide layer, which forms naturally on the aluminium surface.

    Improving cutting of ultra-high-strength steel

    SSAB, Swerim
    Nov 2018 - Nov 2019

    The Swedish steel producer SSAB with help from Swerim AB and researchers at DESY investigated residual stresses introduced at the edges of the sheet during cutting operations. Using synchrotron X-rays, the company experts found that shear cutting leads to high stresses that can be dangerous for the ultra-high-strength steel (UHSS). The information is valuable for improving the cutting processes.
