  • Electron beam welding (EBW) is a high-density energy (low heat input) welding technique, resulting in a narrow heat affected zone (HAZ), causing minimal metallurgical changes in the workpieces. The present research work investigates EB autogenous welded AlSi10Mg samples, produced by the selective laser melting (SLM) additive manufacturing (AM) method, with emphasis on the characterization of the joint's macro- and microstructure. When comparing the EB welded AM parts to the EB welded cast samples two main differences …
