High energy beam welding joins two metallic workpieces together by heating the joint with a powerful energy beam.


Overview of Process

High energy beam welding processes join two metallic workpieces at a joint by heating it with the power from an energy beam.


Additional Notes

This is a classification process, not a end-node process. Specifying the detailed end-node process required will produce a better RfD search result.
