CFC Spring

Posted on July 3, 2019 · Posted in featured news

Neftec are pleased to announce they in the final stages of developing their own CFC Spring.

CFC Springs are very useful for Brazing jig applications. A CFC spring allows for increased force to be added to on a jig assembly during the heat-treatment stage.

There are a number of positive reasons to switch from a traditional metal Brazing jig to a CFC jig and CFC spring setup.

CFC Brazing jigs that utilise a CFC Spring allows you to remove a lot of dead weight that is traditionally used in a Brazing jig. A dead weight is used to apply pressure during the brazing cycle. The overall weight reduction has huge benefits to Heat-treatment operators and production output. By reducing the weight you can increase the number of jigs per cycle thus increasing your output.

As mentioned a CFC spring allows for increased forced to be added during the brazing cycle. The force is equally distributed and provides better control across the entire product being brazed. (Heat exchanged, oil coolers for example) Because the force is better controlled than just using the brute force of a dead weight. You find that the brazing results are a very good when compared to a traditional jig setup.

Other benefits include:

  • Reducing energy consumption due to the reduced mass
  • CFC Springs – custom designed. Your spring and jig will be specifically designed for your needs
  • More units per Brazing cycle due to the reduced sizes of the CFC Brazing Jig
  • Better brazing results
  • No thermal deformation
