Dual Capabilities in Laser and Electron Beam Welding Help Streamline Manufacturing Process
EAST GRANBY, Conn.—Its ability to provide laser beam welding and electron beam (EB) welding has allowed Joining Technologies to take on more welding projects for the medical device and aerospace industries, the company announced recently. But the dual capabilities also enable Joining Technologies to streamline the manufacturing process for a variety of products—including sensors, medical devices, and products requiring a sealed vacuum—that use both laser and EB in different steps of the production process.
Having access to both technologies can be especially useful for jobs that require a vacuum within the finished part, according to the company. Generally, a laser will be used wherever possible to keep cycle times and costs down, and EB is employed to achieve the deeper penetration welds or to create a vacuum. The company says that it is able to fully realize each technology's particular advantages when fusing together complex geometries and meeting demands for superior metallurgy.
Joining Technologies (www.joiningtech.com) prides itself on being an innovator in precision fusion processes, including laser and electron beam welding, laser additive manufacturing, and weld system design and integration. The company has cultivated an engineering team focused on developing economical solutions for joining metal components.
