Brazed components play a crucial role in consistent joining techniques. The brazing process is characterized by low process temperatures and fast processing times, compared to welding techniques. Beside the resulting low manufacturing costs, brazing can join dissimilar materials, e.g. metals and ceramics. Consequently, brazing provides potential for many industrial applications like the production of power electronic devices, in automotive engineering, and for power generation. Simultaneously, brazing provides potentials for seminal applications, such as for the production of structures for particle accelerators and in space technology, as well as for heat exchanging systems for hydrogen energy production.
