EB Weld Advantages: Material Weldability | PTR-Precision Technologies, Inc. | PTR - Electron Beam (EB) Welding | Scoop.it
This high power density provides the ability to EB weld refractory metals, high thermal conductivity materials and dissimilar material combinations that are extremely difficult or impossible to join using conventional welding processes.
Derek Mayers's insight:

Developing a new application? Do you have questions about the feasibility of welding varying material combinations together?

 

Check out this useful chart which details the weldabilty of many material combinations. The ability to weld these bi-metallic metal combinations is one of the many benefits of choosing to utilize the electron beam welding process for your application!

Electron Beam Welding Process, Applications and Recent Advancements - ASM International

Electron Beam Welding Process, Applications and Recent Advancements - ASM International | PTR - Electron Beam (EB) Welding | Scoop.it
Electron Beam welding has been in commercial use for six decades and is still one of the most precise and flexible welding processes available. It was first used in the aerospace and nuclear industries because of its ability to weld materials that would rapidly oxidize if welded using conventional arc welding methods. Aerospace is still a major user of electron beam welding technology, but many other industries including industrial turbines, oil & gas equipment, semiconductor, defense, electronics, medical and automotive industries also use the technology. Most people have electron beam welded items such as automotive transmission gears or bimetal saw blades in their home or garage.
Derek Mayers's insight:

For local ASM International members in the greater Los Angeles area that are interested in learning more about electron beam welding process and its latest developments be sure to stop in to see PTR's John Rugh present; "Electron Beam Welding Process, Applications and Recent Advancements" at the San Fernando Valley meeting this Thursday September 24th at 7:00pm.
