  • For Professional Members of the Institute - AWeldI, MWeldI, or FWeldI also with Engineering Council registration if applicable

This is a Member only event, specifically for members of the Sheffield, Leeds and East Midlands branches. Other members may be able to attend should spaces become available.

Overview: Electron beams are a versatile and controllable heat source which are known for making very narrow, high integrity welds for the assembly of aero turbine engines, automotive turbochargers and similar products. Using very similar equipment it’s possible to join thin and very thick sections. From thin foils right up to heavy section structures for the power industry, the process can deliver fantastic single pass productivity. Mike will cover conventional in chamber EB welding and processing, as well as the growing focus of research to allow EB welding to escape the constraints of the vacuum chamber and address large structures.

Speaker: Mike Nunn

Speaker Biography: Mike Nunn is the Manager of the electron beam (EB) processes team at TWI and is responsible for EB technology and strategy; he also has corporate oversight of all manufacturing activities at TWI - where on occasion unique R&D facilities are applied for low volume, high value, production. The EB team at TWI is engaged in welding, additive manufacture, surface engineering and provision of advanced equipment solutions.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD): Attending this event supports your professional development.  You can claim 2 CPD points per hour for this event.  As a member of the Welding Institute you can record your CPD activity online from your membership portal.
