Turbocharger Models

Turbocharger Electron Beam Welding Machines

CVE’s turbocharger models have been designed specifically for turbochargers, an automotive component that is currently fitted in millions of vehicles across the world.

Electron beam welding joins a cast Inconel wheel and a carbon steel shaft together. The electron beam is a finely focused stream of electrons, which melts the two metal surfaces together, resulting in an excellent quality of weld with the characteristics of:

  • Deep penetration
  • Narrow fusion zone (HAZ)
  • Near parent metal strength

Welding inside a vacuum environment ensures a clean and pure process.
