EB Industries was founded in 1965 by George DeLalio, an aeronautical engineer from Purdue University, with a vision that high quality technology and exacting customer service should be an everyday occurrence. With a single Electron Beam Welding Machine, EBI operated around the clock in a 5000 square-foot facility to service companies that supported the Apollo missions, engaged in relay manufacturing and production of military aircraft components.
As EBI grew, four electron beam welders and a dedicated team moved to a 16,000 square-foot facility, custom designed and built to support our business. With a fully equipt welding job shop, administrative offices, cleaning and testing areas and quality and metallographic labs, we were set up for the future.
In 1984, as the medical device and microelectronics fields demanded high-quality work at high production prices, we added laser welding to complement our electron beam welding business. Now, our laser welding services business uses high-power, pulsed Nd Yag lasers with critical cooling and versatile welding capabilities to produce a high quality weld. We are able to offer excellent metallurgical quality without distortion.
In 1993, Steven DeLalio, son of the founder, took over as President of EB Industries. With over 15 years of hands-on welding experience as well as an extensive background in electronics, computers and automation, the highly skilled EBI team is well equipt to be led to face the challenges of the 21st century.
Our comprehensive electron beam welding services combine the high performance characteristics of electron beam welders and the advancements in electron beam technology. We can process even the most complicated component easily using our EB welding machines.
In 1994, we added laser hermetic sealing services, which allowed us to further serve the microelectronics, fiber optic, and implantable device industries. We take care to select the right sealing materials and proper weld configuration, parameters that are extremely important in hermetic sealing. We assure quality hermetic seals that are more reliable than mechanical seals.
In 2000, EBI made major efforts to improve efficiency without compromising quality and service. After studying lean manufacturing models, major renovations and reorganizations were made, and are continued to date, which will support our current needs and future vision.
Apart from our predominant E B welding, laser welding, and hermetic sealing services, we offer a range of secondary services on the basis of customer interest. CAD/CAM product design, tool design and fabrication, metallurgical evaluation, non-destructive testing, and thermal treating are some of the secondary services offered.
We see continued growth in all of the industries we serve and look forward to sharing with our customers a bright and prosperous future.
