12kW, 80kV Electron Beam Welding (EBW) Equipment is used for welding
circular seams (60 mm maximum outer diameter) and linear seams (200 mm
maximum length) of refractory as well as high strength materials such as
Niobium, Zircalloy and maraging steel.
Electron Beam Welding (EBW) can produce deep penetration welds with very
low mechanical distortion. This reduces the post weld machining cost.
EBW is also useful in welding thick sections in a single pass. This
process is preferred in applications wherein the purity of the weld is
of utmost importance since the weld process is carried out under vacuum.
EBW is mainly used for welding of nuclear and aerospace components.
Advancements in the EBW process automation has lead to increased
production throughput. Hence this welding process is presently receiving
wider application in automotive and microelectronics industries.
