Application Areas


our products are used in many application areas,  such as heat exchangers, automotive,  cooling circuits , electrical contacts or the development of various tools: Wherever it is necessary join two metals (and not only) there is the possibility to use brazing alloys and fluxes. The size of the sector, the size of the production or  the consolidated  technologies create preferences in the use of a technique rather than another, of a material rather than another. In the pages below we will show a series of examples to familiarize yourself with our world. News, special insights as well as can also be seen on our blog

A historian has said that Henry Ford freed common people from the limitations of their geography. The statement cogently summarizes the social transformations still proceeding throughout the world as a result of the motor vehicle. It has created mobility on a scale never known before, and the total effect on living habits and social customs is still incalculable.
The philosophers' stone is a legendary alchemical substance believed to be an elixir of life, useful for rejuvenation and possibly for achieving immortality, it was also said to give omniscience about the past and the future, about the evil and the good (this is why it has been called philosophers). It is famous mainly to be capable of turning base metals such as lead into gold (chrysopoeia) or silver, but a real goldsmiths knows that to transform a simple gold in an extraordinary object it is necessary talent, dexterity and knowledge of tools, including brazing ...
In the late Republican period in Rome we can find The first Heather Exchange, a system to warm up the water in the “termarium”. The thermal exchange was made by heating stone plates into the water passages. Other example of heaters exchange in history can be found in the alembic distillers in the medieval ages. Between the XVIII–XIX centuries pipe boilers and condensers where introduced, especially in the steam engines.
Today, even if the principals are the same, we are assisting to a spectacular research of clean an environmental use of the heaters exchange technology, construction, materials and brazing method.
Tables, chairs, beds, chandeliers, sculptures: an incredible number of object from our everyday life, simple common object or design masterpiece, creativity icons. Have you ever thought how many things are made by brazing?
The develpment of the real estate industry in the last 20 years made an important demand for towel radiators. This object was originally create to simply warm the bathroom, but in few year it started to meet architect inspiration and from a simple pipe product the radiator became a design object. Let's see how is it possible to produce a new master peace for everybody's house.
In 1805, American inventor Oliver Evans described a closed vapor-compression refrigeration cycle for the production of ice by ether under vacuum. In 1820, the British scientist Michael Faraday liquefied ammonia and other gases by using high pressures and low temperatures, and in 1834, an American expatriate to Great Britain, Jacob Perkins, built the first working vapor-compression refrigeration system in the world. It was a closed-cycle device that could operate continuously.[3] A similar attempt was made in 1842, by American physician, John Gorrie,[4] who built a working prototype, but it was a commercial failure. American engineer Alexander Twining took out a British patent in 1850 for a vapour compression system that used ether.The first successful application of frozen foods occurred when General Foods heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post (then wife of Joseph E. Davies, United States Ambassador to the Soviet Union) deployed commercial-grade freezers in Spaso House, the US Embassy in Moscow, in advance of the Davies’ arrival. Post, fearful of the USSR's food processing safety standards, fully stocked the freezers with products from General Foods' Birdseye unit. The frozen food stores allowed the Davies to entertain lavishly and serve fresh frozen foods that would otherwise be out of season. Upon returning from Moscow, Post (who resumed her maiden name after divorcing Davies) directed General Foods to market frozen product to upscale restaurants.
