Electron Beam Welding vs. Laser Welding

A comparison of the two processes by application and cost.

Posted: February 4, 2016

Electron Beam Welding is ideal for applications that require a very precise, clean weld with minimal heating of the material outside the primary area of the weld. EB Welding is also excellent for joining dissimilar and hard to weld metals.
Laser Beam Welding is ideal for applications requiring pin-point accuracy at high production rates. It’s non-contact, doesn’t require a vacuum, and is excellent for joining thin materials and small components."

EB Industries, LLC (Farmingdale, NY), a leading provider of electron beam welding, laser welding and hermetic laser sealing services, has recently published a new video detailing the advantages and disadvantages of electron beam welding vs. laser welding.

The video details that electron beam welding is ideal when your 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 in thick steel. The process is also great for joining dissimilar and hard to weld metals.

Laser Beam 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.

“We have found that companies are not clear on which of these services should be used. 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,” John DeLalio, the director of business development, explained.  “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. We also plan to produce a series of additional videos on the intricacies of laser and electron beam welding as well as hermetic sealing. We know the need for this information is out there and hope to educate our clients and prospects on the best options available to them, DeLalio said.

EB Industries has been a leading provider of electron beam welding, laser welding, and laser hermetic sealing services since 1965.They also offer a range of secondary services on the basis of customer interest, including CAD/CAM product design, tool design and fabrication, metallurgical evaluation, non-destructive testing, and thermal treating.They are ISO 9001:2008 and Nadcap certified.
