Abstract : The report describes in detail the commonly encountered fusion welding and vacuum brazing designs for the construction of modern high vacuum components. In the area of fusion welding, the joining of stainless steel tubing to stainless steel flanges, Kovar tubing to stainless flanges, copper tubing to stainless flanges, thin-wall stainless bellows to stainless flanges, butt welding of stainless tubing, and vacuum chamber construction are discussed. The vacuum brazing section includes brazing of feed-thrus to flanges and flange adapters, tubing to flanges, end-caps to tubing and bellows to flange adapters. (Author)
