Stewart Williams to present at AILU laser and electron beam welding event

Laser and electron beam welding are widely accepted manufacturing techniques for a wide range of industrial applications. Both technologies have their advantages and disadvantages, and traditionally these have defined the applications which they are most suitable for. However, on-going developments in both laser and electron beam technology are increasing the overlap between the technologies. As such, there are an increasing number of applications which are considered suitable for both laser and electron beam welding.
