EB Welding can create very deep, slender and parallel seams. High welding speeds are possible, which minimize the workpiece heat input. Distortion and warpage are reduced or even avoided.
Electron beam welding has several features, which are beneficial for the precision and durability of the weld.
In recent years, laser beam welding's popularity has increased as it can cover some of the electron beam welding applications.
However, the laser beam's energy efficiency and available beam power in comparison to EB Welding are significantly lower. Although the laser beam works alos in non-vacuum conditions, several studies and industry applications show, that laser welding in vacuum can nearly double the achievable weld penetration given the same beam power.
Therefore, Evobeam also offers systems for Laser in Vacuum Welding.
We can supply the optimum solution for the specific laser welding in vacuum application for high productivity:
cost-effective, fast, versatile and with highest weld quality. This is why we have successfully supplied our solutions to the demanding aerospace industry and automotive industry amongst others.
