Advantages of Electron Beam Welding and the Industries We Serve

Electron beam welding is a versatile process that works well for many application across many industrial sectors. Here is a brief rundown.

Our electron beam welding services are delivered using certified quality, unique and versatile processes, and high-voltage electron beam welding equipment. Electron beam welding (EB Welding) is a fusion welding process that uses a beam of high velocity electrons to produce a weld. Automobile, aerospace, medical and other industrial parts, which require relatively low distortion, are amenable to electron beam welding technology. Assembly of conventional production parts, partial processing of parts such as gears, valves and bearings are other common applications.

Application Advantages of Electron Beam Welding

As the EB welding process takes place in a vacuum, the welds are clean and free of oxides and nitrides. Narrow, deeper penetration from .001 to 2 inches, with high depth-to-width ratio, eliminates multiple-pass welds completely.

Narrow/Deep: high depth-to-width ratio eliminates multiple-pass welds. Penetration from .001” to 2”.
Low Heat: minimizes shrinkage and distortion and allows welds in close proximity to heat sensitive components.
Strength: welds up to 95% of the strength of the base materials.
Versatility: Precise control and repeatability at speeds from 1 to 200 inches per minute.
High Purity: Vacuum environment eliminates impurities such as oxides and nitrides.
Unique: Permits welding of refractory and dissimilar metals not weldable with conventional welding process.
