Description: This lecture gives a brief introduction to beam welding and cutting techniques of aluminium; it describes the process principle of electron and laser beam welding and cutting of aluminium; it gives some information about the choice of welding and cutting parameters; it also gives information about the weldability of aluminium alloys with electron beam welding. General mechanical engineering background and basic knowledge of electron and laser beam physics is assumed.
