Process of Electron Beam Welding

At the position of the focussed electron beam, the kinetic energy heats the workpiece material above the melting point. The energy of the electrons vaporises the material.

The size of this focal spot can be smaller than 80-90 micrometres. Hence there is created a weld pool, of molten material, which is surrounded by a melting mantle.

The weld pool can be considered as a conical slot, tapering from the workpiece surface into the material. As the electron beam moves on it's programmed path, this conical slot of molten material progresses.

At the front of the slot, material is being melted, which then floats around the conical profile. At the rear of the beam path, the molten material is solidifying, forming the joint.
