Rolls-Royce: Who Requires Or Recommends MIG Brazing? 

In Europe, MIG brazing has been required or recommended on a widespread basis for several years. In the U.S., MIG brazing is not as common but is becoming more prevalent. As the RTS team is researching MIG brazing information, we are putting together a series of articles that identify OEM-specific MIG brazing recommendations and requirements for vehicles in the U.S. Let’s see what Rolls-Royce has to say.

Rolls-Royce may refer to MIG brazing as soldering and often interchanges these two terms in their repair information and on the service site.

Information on MIG brazing can typically be found on the service site by searching for "soldering" or "brazing". Depending on what vehicle you are searching under, the document title and the document number and that contains this information may vary. This information may also be in specific repair procedures.

Typically, the document is titled Welding and Soldering Steel Components. Within this document Rolls-Royce states the following: "MIG soldered/brazed seams used in standard production are replaced during repairs by MAG weld seams."

To clarify, even where Rolls-Royce uses MIG brazing at the factory, they are stating that during repairs MIG brazing is NOT to be used. They specify that GMA welding is to be used at these factory MIG brazed locations.

It is important to check vehicle-specific body repair manuals and other OEM information about MIG brazing in order to ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
