Electron Beam and Laser Welding Specialists

Innovative solutions for technical problems

ELECTRON BEAM WELDING

Electron beam welding (EBW) is a fusion welding process that uses a high-velocity electron beam to join two materials together, with a wide range of applications in many industries.

Characteristics of electron beam welds include:

  • Deep penetration
  • High depth-to-width ratio
  • Inert atmosphere (vacuum)
  • Low distortion
  • Narrow fusion zone
  • Near parent metal strength

You can view our full range of electron beam welding systems on our website – including our revolutionary Ebflow technology.

If you are not sure which system is right for your application, please get in touch! Our machines are built-to-order and manufactured at our Cambridge Headquarters. With 60-years of process know-how in providing turn-key solutions, we can find the right solution for your application.

LASER BEAM WELDING

Laser beam welding (LW) is a welding process that uses a high-power density laser beam to join two materials together, creating a deep, narrow weld.

Characteristics of laser welds include:

  • Deep, narrow weld
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • High speed, high productivity
  • Low distortion
  • Minimal post-weld machining
  • Suitable for thin section materials

In the aerospace industry, electron beam welding can produce welds in a wide range of materials including titanium alloys, aluminium alloys, heat-resisting and high-strength alloys and can be successfully applied to high critical components, ensuring that stringent safety requirements are met.

In the automotive industry, electron beam welding has many applications; from turbochargers to gears and convertors to shunt resistors in standard fuel, hybrid, and electric vehicles. CVE can provide continuous strip welding systems for EV batteries, as well as turbocharger welders.

All offshore wind structures require high productivity welding fabrication and reliable performance. There is a range of structures that need to be fabricated as part of an offshore wind turbine, including monopiles, suction anchors, and flanges – and CVE can provide welding systems to achieve this.

There are many applications for electron beam welding in the nuclear industry, including pressure vessels for conventional power, small modular reactor (SMR) and micro modular reactor (MMR) fabrication, as well as associated pressure retaining and structural components.

The electron beam welding process has a low heat input, the shape of the fusion zone can be optimised and the process is done in a vacuum, which prevents oxidation – minimising the risk of damage to sensitive electronics.
