ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRON BEAM WELDING
HIGH EFFICIENCY. Electron beam welding produces about half as much waste heat as tungsten arc welding, to minimize distortion and metallurgical problems.
PINPOINT CONTROL. Width of weld can be focused almost to a hairline, or broadened as desired.
CLEANER WELDS. Welds are performed in vacuum (a high purity environment). This produces welds as clean or cleaner than original material. Oxides, nitrides and carbides are flushed out by heat and vacuum.
STRONGER WELDS. Physical and mechanical properties of electron beam welded samples are typically better than welds made with other processes.
HIGH REACTIVE & REFRACTORY MATERIALS can be welded successfully.
THIN-GAUGE WELDING. Edge and butt-welds can be made in metals as thin as 0.001 inch.
EXTREMELY SMALL, THIN PARTS can be welded to heavy sections.
HIGH SPEED. Higher welding speeds compared to other welding processes.
LOW DISTORTION. Low Distortion and heat damage. Low heat generation at very specific areas resulting in a narrow zone of heat flow.
COMPUTER CONTROLLED. Computer controlled equipment gives ability to weld complex geometries and a controlled repeatability.
ULTRA PRECISION. Allowing narrow access capability for the most demanding job.
DEEP WELD DEPTH. Deep penetration with a narrow fusion zone. Accurately controllable depth-to-width ratio.
