Aluminum Electron Beam Welding4047 to 4047 Weldable
2219 to 4047 Weldable
1100 to 4047 Weldable
6061 to 4047 Weldable
2219 to 2219 Weldable
1100 to 2219 Weldable
6061 to 6061 Weldable only with Filler
7000 Series Unweldable
2000 Series Unweldable (except 2219)
5000 Series Marginal weld
BerylliumRequires special techniques but can be electron beam welded
This welding is toxic and requires special enclosures & ventilation
Beryllium CopperWelds well, needs deoxidizing
Cast ironWelds fair, porosity may be a problem, recommend OFHC
CopperWelds fair, porosity may be a problem
KovarWelds well, if not plated. Nickel & Gold plating causes cracks
Magnesium AlloysWelds with special techniques
MolybdenumBrittle welds, weldable with special techniques
Nickel alloysWeldable
PH SteelsWeldable
Stainless Steel300 series – weldable
400 series – weldable
Steel-Low Carbon10-20 points of carbon EB welds well except for free machining grades
Steel-Medium Carbon20-50 points of carbon
Anything over 20 points may require preheat and post heat
Steel- High CarbonOver 50 points – weldable with special techniques, may require stress relief
TungstenWelds fair – may be brittle
Zinc AlloysNot weldable due to out gassing
