ELECTRON BEAM WELDING


NuTech Precision Metals Joining Technology Division operates Canadas only commercial Electron Beam Welding (EBW) facility. This metal joining technology uses an intense narrow beam of accelerated electrons to fuse metals and dissimilar materials together in a vacuum sealed chamber, producing welds of the highest quality with extreme precision and speed. The vacuum sealed chamber creates an environment of purity by eliminating atmospheric contaminates, enabling the joining of reactive metals and materials that would otherwise be difficult to weld. High penetration welds are performed in a single pass with minimal heat input, reducing the amount of distortion of joined components. Our Canadian Electron Beam Weld facility offers prototype construction, and customdesigned fixturing to support consistent, costefficient, high production. Among the materials typically joined by our Electron Beam Welding process are Beryllium Copper, Copper, Aluminum, CR & HR Nickel Alloys, Carbon Steel and its alloys, Stainless Steels (any grade), Titanium, Tantalum, Molybdenum, Hafnium, Niobium and Zircaloy. NuTech Precision Metals Joining Technology Division provides high vacuum Electron Beam Welding services to the Aerospace, Military, Offshore Drilling, Mining, Chemical, Manufacturing and Nuclear industries. The Division is supported with full metallurgical equipment for metallographic preparation and microscopes for weld analysis.
