A number of recent new developments of the E.O. Paton Electric Welding Institute is presented, namely the technologies and equipment for welding with applying the highly-concentrated power sources: plasma, laser and electron ones. Technologies were developed for welding of pipes, thick titanium, aluminium-lithium alloys, high-strength steels. The vapor-phase technologies were developed for producing nanostructured materials for welding composite materials and intermetallics. Technologies and equipment for underwater welding and cutting, new electron beam tool for welding in open space were developed. To increase the life and safety of the weld, the postweld treatment was suggested by using the high-density electric pulses and high-frequency mechanical peening. To control the quality of welded structures, the designed digital equipment, based on high-sensitive solid-body converters and an industrial robot with a technical vision system for products of intricate geometry were developed. The new method was developed for growing refractory metal single crystals. New equipment is presented for welding of live tissues. 28 Ref., 2 Tables, 25 Figures.
Keywords: plasma, laser, electron beam and resistance welding, titanium, aluminium-lithium alloys, strength, quality control, surfacing, single crystals, welding of live tissues
