Electron Beam Welding Services

KTI, Inc. (part of the KTI group of companies) 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 most metals, while producing 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 x 16' 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.

KTI, Inc. can handle full project and supply chain management for a wide range of components. In addition, our well-equipped shop possesses a variety of machining capabilities that complement our welding services.

Our internal materials engineering staff works closely with UCONN, MIT, and other universities on collaborative projects that incorporate laboratory testing, and analysis services. Patentable processes and designs are part of our ongoing commitment to innovation.

KTI, Inc. has mechanical and metallurgical engineering staff who can offer expertise and assistance in weld joint design and material selection.

KTI Inc ., an industry leader in Electron Beam welding technology recent expanded their capabilities and capacity. A Wentgate 12”x12” EB chamber has been added to KTI’s EB welding facility. This machine can pump down in 30 seconds greatly reducing welding time, unit cost and tooling requirements. Depth of penetration is 500“.

Another machine, a Leybold W - 3 , added on line first quarter 2018 . This is a 15KW machine with a chamber size of 108” L x 56” W x 66” H. This EB chamber expands KTI’s weld depth capabilities as well as capacity to handle customer volume growth.

The KTI group specializes in electron beam welding, laser welding, and FAA repair station services. They are Nadcap & FAA certified providing welded components for ground turbine engines, power generation equipment, sensor components, missile components, turbo machinery. Various capabilities include tooling, fixturing, designing, etching, inspection, research and development. KTI serves the aerospace, automotive, electronic, military, medical, commercial and industrial industries.
