BEAM was started as a part-time venture
in 1962, full time operation in 1965 , and was incorporated
in 1970. A wide variety of products and services have
been provided for the welding industry, primarily
for use in the arc welding process.
products are the flexible hollow core welding cables
and conduits used in the semi-automatic and automatic
wire welding process. The oldest design is a hollow
coiled conduit, with steel reinforcing strands and
an insulating jacket, which carried the wire electrode
to the arc. This older steel stranded conduit was
marketed to original equipment manufacturers and welding
distributors for use in semi-automatic welding cables.
Now adapted and engineered to today’s markets,
they are offered for many wire feed solutions.
our 125,000 square foot facility houses several product
lines, including Electron Beam Technologies’
trademarked “Fast ‘N Easy®”
conduit systems. Leading the way is the versatile
QCC® quick connect conduit and the ERC® extended
time, as the market accepted bulk electrode, our product
line expanded to offer drum covers: the Dura-Dome®
series. The durable, crystal clear drum cover
allows the operator to easily see into the electrode
drum from any angle. As the desire to use continuous
electrode provides less downtime, more wire manufacturers
entered the market. Electron Beam Technologies was
ready with machine connectors that would “quick
connect” into these feeders and pay-off systems.
Today, we lead the market with simple adaptors for
all machines, reducing the need for large, costly
operation continues to take pride in being a world-wide
leader in welding conduits and wire delivery systems,
both to the end user and to O.E.M. development.
Wlos (second from left), Electron Beam President, continues
to use his vision for the future to improve and broaden
the scope of products offered by the company for the
end user as well as the Original Equipment market (1967
the year 2000, with increased use of aluminum electrodes,
the Blue PE Conduits
were added to the distributor network. These polymer
based conduits provide ease of installation, superior
feeding, and less wire contamination. They are being
used for replacement in mild steel markets due to their
robotics continuing to push the wire feeding envelope,
flexibility was again addressed by Electron Beam Technologies
when it introduced QCC-R®
Conduit. This version of the trusted QCC® provides
extra flexibility in a round wire, steel lined, wire
feeding conduit. It offers the strength of a reinforced
conduit, with reduced weight.
MANAGEMENT TEAM: Our
team has a total of over 190 years of
experience in the welding industry!
We look forward to assisting you with
all of your welding electrode/wire applications.
