Ebtech Industries Pty Ltd is a Melbourne, Australia-based engineering job shop that specialises in welding and marking processes. Established 30 years ago, the company provides electron beam welding and laser marking services to the automotive, aviation, manufacturing and general engineering industries.

Ebtech found that the electron beam welding process it was using for stainless welding or cutting was not suitable for high volume components. “Flexibility and the ability to manufacture components quickly is a great advantage for us, one that was worth investigating alternative methods for,” said Mike Jenkins, owner of Ebtech: Ebtech Industries began the search for a new process about three years ago. The company was made aware of the laser technological capabilities of GSI’s laser products through a new supplier, Raymax Lasers®, based in Australia. Mike Jenkins flew out to GSI’s applications laboratory in Rugby, UK to see the products for himself. This exposure led to the decision to proceed with laser processing and to purchase from GSI.
