Aluminum/Copper dissimilar metal connection devices have been widely used in equipment manufacturing. Ultrasonic vibration assisted semi-solid brazing technology is beneficial to improve brazing quality by using the good flow ability and strong deformation resistance of brazing alloy when it is in a semi-solid state. In this study, a new ultrasound-assisted high-frequency induction brazing method was used to braze aluminum and copper dissimilar metals under non-vacuum conditions with

Detailed investigations on the effects of aluminum-substrate side (Abbreviated as Al side) heat dissipation rate and ultrasonic vibration duration on the microstructure evolution and mechanical properties of semisolid weld were conducted. The results show that the welding seam obtained by the modification method increases the microstructure uniformity of brazing joint.
