Electron beam welding

Overview

Due to it’s ability to produce a zero contamination, deeper and narrower weld than conventional methods, electron beam welding (EBW) minimises distortion and can weld a large variety of dissimilar metals. CNC control of a ’steerable’ electron beam ensures that all parameters are repeatable.

Advantages

  • Accuracy and repeatability
  • Narrow weld

Used on

  • Engine cases
  • Thrust links
  • Large fabricated skins
