For many decades the E.O. Paton Electric Welding Institute of the NAS of Ukraine has been specializing in the development of technology and equipment for electron beam welding of modern structural alloys. The electron beam equipment developed at the Institute allows solving problems of joining the elements of complex structures of different branches of industry. The examples and technical capabilities of the installations, mostly demanded by industry, are shown. A number of products are given, in the production of which both equipment and new technological processes were successfully applied, which include restoration repair of parts of gas turbine engines and the technologies of layer-by-layer manufacturing of products using the method of rapid prototyping.
Keywords: electron beam welding, equipment, repair, 3D technologies
