Electron Beam Welding of Heavy-Duty Transmission Components 730799

The conversion from submerged arc welding to electron beam welding (EBW) of transmission components at Clark Equipment Co. is described. The latter system permits the consistent holding of close tolerances and the obtaining of controllable and repeatable metallurgical structures. In addition, control of the weld and distortions is increased, and weld joints are made feasible in otherwise inaccessible locations.
A brief history is presented which touches on the selection of transmission products for EBW, choice of EBW equipment, preliminary evaluation, and acceptance of the process by personnel. Then, the application of EBW to production parts is discussed.
