Fusion will display the Rotary Index 100, a machine for brazing and soldering, at this year’s IMTS event. The machine is compact, with dimensions of 48" W × 48" D. Rates are typically between 100-250 parts per hour, depending on assembly mass and configuration. Brass, copper, steel, stainless steel and aluminum can all be joined on the machine.
The production sequence begins with an operator, who loads the assembly into a stainless steel fixture. A deposit of Fusion Paste Filler Metal is applied to the joint area with an automatic dispenser. The assemblies then move through two or three flame heat stations and an air and water cooling sequence before unloading. The machine is also available with induction heat. It comes equipped with clear, acrylic guarding on three sides. Utilities required are 120 VAC, natural gas or propane and 80 psi air, water and drain.
