CVE’s Chris Punshon to Present at Weld Tech Talk
Weld Tech Talk
Chris Punshon, Head of New Energy Applications at Cambridge Vacuum Engineering, will feature on the upcoming episode of Weld Tech Talk on Saturday 30th October 2021 at 17:00 IST.
Hosted by The Indian Institute of Welding, the episode’s title is Local Vacuum Power Beam Welding in Energy Applications.
The presentation will cover CVE’s development of local vacuum electron beam welding and its commercialisation (Ebflow), illustrating practical applications of the process in heavy section structural steels, austenitic stainless steels and high-temperature alloys.
Examples of the current and potential applications will be presented together with evidence of achievable weld quality and properties.
Power Beam Welding Developments
Electron beam (EB) welding is a powerful welding process capable of joining large thicknesses of metallic materials in a single pass, leading to the potential for high productivity combined with exceptional weld quality and minimal distortion.
The development of reduced pressure EB welding, and more recently, reduced pressure laser welding has led to the possibility of deploying the process outside the usual confines of a vacuum chamber using local sealing and pumping.
This local vacuum process variant also permits the delivery of active gas during welding, which leads to the possibility of weld composition modification in autogenous welds.
The presentation will aim to answer any questions received before the event where possible, or you may ask them at the end during the Q&A session.
The presentation will take online via Zoom on Saturday 30th October 2021 at 17:00 IST.
