Narrow seams and easy to automate
Whether components for the aerospace industry, automotive industry or scientific research facilities, where other welding processes reach their limitations, the electron beam process ensures optimum results. The welding process in a vacuum offers many advantages:
- Easy automation: Because the electron beam is a digital tool, joining processes can be easily automated, welding results are reproducible at any time and mechanical properties remain intact.
- Flexibility: The electron beam can be made into any shape using magnetic fields to enable the welding of geometrically complex components. This gives engineers a great amount of freedom when it comes to process design and construction.
- High efficiency: The process delivers deep, narrow and parallel seams. With simple seam preparation and a weld penetration depth of over 150 mm, electron beam joining is far superior to other thermal processes. This eliminates the need for multiple layer welding or additional material. Oversize is significantly reduced due to near-net-shape processing.
- Maximum precision: Electron beam welding achieves precise results with minimum stress and warping of workpieces.
- High welding speed: Many metallic materials and material combinations can be welded using an electron beam at a higher speed and with practically no ejections. Finished components are ready to install immediately or after only minimal reworking.
