Applications of 60kV Systems

Applications of 60kV Systems


CVE’s 60kV electron beam welding machine range is ideal for welding small-to-medium-sized components at high efficiency.


60kV machines are suitable for all metals including those with high thermal conductivity, such as:

  • Steel and stainless steel
  • Aluminium and its alloys
  • Nickel alloys and refractory metals
  • Titanium and its alloys
  • Zr, Mo, Ta, Hf, W, Nb, etc.


The low heat input means that sensitive internal electronics packages may be sealed in the device without harm.


Please find a detailed list of industries and components below.

  • Sensors and structures
  • Transmission parts


  • Gears
  • Transmission parts
  • Turbocharger parts (figure 2)

Machine Types

CVE have two 60kV machine types, ECO and CW.

The ECO model has a modular, flexible design to enhance production capabilities. The ECO is ideal for welding small-to-medium-sized components, with a small footprint and high-efficiency.

The CW model has a modular, flexible design to enhance production capabilities. The CW is ideal for the welding of medium-sized components and is suitable for thermally conductive materials.
