BeamAssure

The essential tool for electron beam welding and processing

Overview

Measuring and calibrating powerful electron beams is notoriously challenging. BeamAssure makes it simple. 

This advanced QA tool independently measures and quantifies electron beams to aid manufacturing, research or maintenance planning. It captures crucial data and reveals where improvements can be made in real time, giving you assurance of your beam's consistency, even after thousands of welds. 

BeamAssure provides unrivalled confidence in the performance of your electron beam system, so you can have confidence in the integrity of your product.

What is BeamAssure?

BeamAssure is an advanced, durable probe system combining hardware and software, which measures and visually represents key characteristics of an electron beam:

  • Current
  • Asymmetry
  • Profile
  • Focus 
  • Diameter

  • Can be integrated into a welding machine chamber and CNC/PLC or supplied as a portable system.

  • Can be programmed for incorporation into a fully automated production cycle or used manually as needed.

  • Displays results in real time and generates data that can be exported in a range of formats for in-depth analysis.

  • Measures low- and high-power beams.

  • Accumulates long-term process QA data.

  • Quick go/no-go ‘traffic light’ decision-making tool.

  • BeamAssure is already in production and research use on three continents.

  • BeamAssure has been in continuous use for serial aero engine production since 2011.

  • Variants for welding, additive manufacturing and processing.

  • Compatible with all welding machines (up to and in excess of 150kV), and capable of analysing beams at powers exceeding 40kW.

  • Detect and eliminate set-up errors.

  • Analyse and optimise beam parameters.

  • Monitor wear and foresee failure.

  • Culmination of two decades of beam probing understanding and development at TWI.

  • Objectively determines beam focus settings, independently of operator/machine perception.

  • Not intrusive to welding.

  • Requires no thermal management or active cooling.

  • Developed and fully supported by TWI – installation, training and warranty.
