Starting from reference specimens joined by means of metal-inert gas (MIG) arc brazing, individual process parameters were altered in isolation from each other and their influence on the seam properties was established. The objective was to assign any occurring irregularities to existing process conditions. Thereafter, it was assessed what influence the seam defects or discontinuities exert on the joint properties. In this respect, particular interest centred on the seam strength and the corrosion resistance.
