Electron Beam Surface Modification

Surface Modification in the micro range by fast beam deflection can increase the joining properties of adhesive bonds and polymer-steel joints.

During electron beam harding the surface hardness can be increased, depending of the carbon content, up to 1600 HV0.1. This can be done very accurately in a range of a few microns in width and depth. In the example below a axle of a turbo-charger is processed only at the bearing seats.

Every metal surface can be polished or engraved by electron beam.
