    Updated 3 years 1 week ago

    The following paper displays a summary of illustrative presentation of electron beam welding. This presentation is a part of Days of Science, taking place regularly in ISI Brno, usually at the beginning of November. The visitors may see…

  • Electron beam welding of thin-walled parts

    Crosssection of an membrane bellows welded by the electron beam
    Updated 6 years 28 weeks ago

    When some devices (e.g. vacuum or cryogenics) are manufactured, the need to weld thin-walled parts is often met. Application of electron beam for this purpose may bring, compared with micro-plasma or laser) some valuable advantages balancing its higher…

  • Weldability of various materials

    Weld of aluminium parts
    Updated 5 years 16 weeks ago

    The possibility to join metal parts by fusion welding depends first of all on their metallurgical properties. This problematic is extremely wide, therefore, in this paper, we shall restrict our interest to only some specific questions, more important for…

  • Electron beam welding machines in ISI: past&present

    E-beam welder ES-2 manufactured and installed in ISI, Brno
    Updated 4 years 15 weeks ago

    The Institute of Scientific Instruments (ISI) of the Czechoslovac Academy of Sciences (CSAV) was founded in 1957 as successor of so-called „Scientific Workshop“. In 1960 the founders,…

  • Electron beam in technologies

    Heat exchanger welded by electron beam
    Updated 6 years 25 weeks ago

    In the past, as well as today, people looked for ways how to make use of that what the nature offered. The knowledge how to gain, process and use metals, up today belongs to the most important skills. Names of the first known metals, bronze and iron, had…

  • Depth of weld

    Metalograpics cross-section of welding sample
    Updated 6 years 25 weeks ago

    The depth of penetration of electron beam into material (in solid state) depends on more factors. The most important of them are the total power of the beam and the power density in the cross-section of the beam (the focusation). It also…

  • Basic features of electron beam welding

    Profily typických svarů elektronovým svazkem
    Updated 6 years 25 weeks ago

    The kinetic energy of fast moving electrons can be utilised as a source of heat for welding. The free electrons in vacuum can be accelerated by electric field and formed by magnetic lens into a narrow ray carrying high energy, which is transformed into…
