The document is a collaborative effort by AIAG’s Brazing Work Group, which comprises volunteers from Abbott Furnace, Ford Motor Company, Dana Incorporated, General Motors Company, and Magna International.

AIAG and the Brazing Work Group recognize the importance of validating brazing processes across the supply chain. “Providing a common assessment for the industry should result in less variation and fewer warranty claims, leaks and recalls – providing a framework for improvement which will enable organizations to ensure design and product specification requirements are consistently met,” according to AIAG.

At Abbott, we are honored to be a part of the Brazing Work Group and share our expertise in this area. Stephen Feldbauer, Ph.D., Director, Research and Development at Abbott and Brazing Work Group participant, says, “this assessment provides valuable information and examples that can be used to capture known process knowledge, target issues, and make continued improvements to the brazing process.”

This group is part of AIAG’s Special Process Initiative, which is developing standards and assessments based on best practices in eight AIAG special process areas, including brazing. The assessment is available for purchase in the AIAG Store.
