Electron Beam Welding Services

With the acquisition of KTI, Inc, Advance Welding now specializes in Nadcap and FAA certified electron beam welding and laser welding. All of KTI’s key skilled personnel, machinery, and capabilities for electron beam welding and laser welding came across in the acquisition.

We provide welded components for ground turbine engines, power generation equipment, sensor components, missile components and turbo machinery. Various capabilities include tooling, fixturing, designing, etching, inspection, research and development. The acquisition of KTI expands Advance Welding’s ability to serve the aerospace, automotive, electronic, military, medical, commercial and industrial industries.

Advance Welding provides electron beam welding services that can accommodate large and small components. We achieve superior control over depth of penetration, weld dimensions, and other properties. Electron beam welding can join together metals that are difficult or impossible to weld with conventional welding processes. EB welding produces welds that are deeper, narrower, and less tapered than conventional welding processes.

Our electron beam welding facilities include large chambers measuring up to 7.5' in diameter x16' long, serviced by 3 ton cranes. In house testing capabilities include sectioning, etching, microscopic evaluation, helium leak detecting, and hardness testing. We also possess the ability to stress relieve parts up to 6’ in length.

To better meet the needs of our clients, we have developed strategic alliances with other complementary service shops. These include machining, alternative weld processes, and non-destructive testing.

Advance Welding can handle full project and supply chain management for a wide range of components. In addition, our well-equipped facility possesses a limited variety of machining capabilities that complement our welding services. Advance Welding has engineering staff who can offer expertise and assistance in weld joint design and material selection.

Advance Welding is now an industry leader in Electron Beam welding technology.
