TAV goes to Venice Biennale: new materials to design the future

“Material” is the critical component that determines whether a product works as planned, or fails. Over the last 50 years there has been an explosion of new materials that today’s engineers have been experimenting with. The key challenge is to raise the sustainability and performance level of products. By adopting an unusual, artistic approach, TAV VACUUM FURNACES encourages you to reflect on new materials, and it does so with Biennale Arte in Venice.

Vacuum brazing: the guide to perfect brazed joints

When the importance of producing a perfect brazed joint is uppermost, vacuum brazing is a highly effective method of joining two parts. Due to the nature of the vacuum, heat is evenly distributed and part production is consistent. Brazing requires three components: two parent metal pieces and a filler to join them. In the furnace, the components are arranged so that the filler will melt and flow on the base pieces, and join them solidly when cooled. Vacuum brazing provides strength, durability, and reliability unmatched by other metal joining methods. It also requires no secondary fabrication or finishing.

Diffusion bonding of titanium: The Definitive Guide

Advanced engineering components require not only better materials but also new joining or welding processes. Recently, diffusion bonding has become a viable process in the fabrication of structural hardware or fluid and gas flow devices for aerospace and electronic industries. This technology heats and applies pressure on joint materials and uses molecular diffusion to bond them. This means that the resulting joint has properties similar or equal to the parent materials. The process has the ability to produce high quality titanium joints so that neither metallurgical discontinuities nor porosity exist across the interface.
