EB Industries Releases New Video on Electron Beam Welding vs. Laser Welding

Video details advantages and disadvantages of EB welding vs. laser welding

FARMINGDALE, N.Y.— EB Industries, LLC, a major provider of electron beam welding, laser welding, and hermetic laser sealing services, has published a new video detailing the advantages and disadvantages of electron beam welding versus laser welding.

The video explains that electron beam welding (EB welding) is ideal when an application requires a very precise, clean weld with minimal heating of the material outside the primary area of the weld. Additionally, EB welding is excellent for deep penetration welds, up to 2 inches in steel. The process is also excellent for joining dissimilar and hard to weld metals.

In contrast, laser beam welding (LB welding) is ideal for applications requiring pin-point accuracy at high production rates. It is non-contact, doesn’t require a vacuum, and is excellent for joining thin materials and small components, the video shows. The video is available on the EB Industries website and may also be viewed at

“We have found that companies are not clear on which of these services should be used,” explained John DeLalio, director of business development, explained. “We see this question over and over ,and felt there was a real need for an informative and detailed video explaining each process and the advantages of each. While we feature this information in print on our website, we felt the video would offer a much clearer picture of laser and EB welding as well as the costs associated with both."

EB Industries, LLC has provided electron beam welding, laser welding, and laser hermetic sealing services since 1965. For more on electron beam welding, see Why EB Welding Is Still Cutting Edge Technology.
