What Is Electron Beam Welding?

Posted by Peter Vincent on Oct 30, 2018 3:22:00 PM

Put very simply, electron beam welding (EBW) is a process whereby two metals are fused or welded together using a beam of high-velocity electrons. This type of welding is suited to applications requiring high-precision, very good repeatability and high-strength.

Electron Beam Welding Vs Laser Welding

Posted by Peter Vincent on Aug 13, 2018 2:30:26 PM

Electron Beam Welding (EBW) and Laser Beam Welding (LBW) and are both fusion welding techniques that use a high energy density beam to melt the joint of two components. Both methods have fast cycle times and produce high weld quality. They are similar and can be used side-by-side in some circumstances, but they are not identical.
