Proponents of laser beam welding (LBW) and electron beam (EBW) welding each pronounce the singular praises of their favored technology, but often the best solution for a customer is to use both technologies together.
Both processes are well suited to joining of components with complex geometries, and capable of meeting the most stringent industry demands for metallurgical characteristics of the final assembly.
Having both laser and electron beam technologies in a single facility can streamline the manufacturing process when a component’s design incorporates multiple weld joints separately tailored for one process or the other. Examples include sensors, medical devices, and products that require an inert gas or vacuum to be sealed within the finished part.
