What is Electron Beam Welding?

Comments (0) Engineering

Andrews Hi-Tec Electron Beam Welding is a fusion welding process with great promise specifically in the medical, nuclear and aerospace industries.

Electron Beam Welding is a fusion welding process in that the mechanism of welding is to join two or more pieces of metal by local melting, which results in coalescence. Filler metal and base metal, or more likely, base metal only may be melted together to produce a joint.

The heat required for welding is produced by the bombardment of the work by a dense beam of high velocity electrons. That is, the electron beam is directed upon the area to be fused, and the electrons upon striking the surface of the metal give up their kinetic energy almost completely in the form of heat energy.
