Work with Us
At E-BEAM Services, we don’t have any products ourselves–we enable YOU to make new or improved products.
E-BEAM has a long track record as a partner, trusted advisor, and service provider for the manufacturers of a wide variety of industrial products, consumer goods, and medical devices across the nation.
Our relationship can start with a non-disclosure agreement before we have our first substantial technical discussion. We can provide you with a standard non-disclosure agreement, or work with your agreement. We can make it happen fast – E-BEAM doesn’t need a lot of legal input because we work within confidential relationships all the time.
How It Works
Your E-BEAM representative will walk through a brief overview of your goals
We can help you design the experiment and tell you what it will cost before we get started
Based on our years of experience, E-BEAM can help you interpret experimental outcomes and help you overcome challenges along the way
We’ll also work with you to determine a configuration that minimizes future production costs for the product
Once you have developed your proprietary product, E-BEAM uses our high-volume electron beam accelerators for high-volume production
What materials respond well to electrons?
The various versions of polyethylene crosslink readily, often turning a commodity plastic part into a specialty product. Some fluoropolymers and PVC compounds also are used in commercial crosslinking applications. Other widely used polymers, like nylon, crosslink best when compounded with a crosslinking promoter.
Some polymer materials undergo chain scissioning. That turns out to be valuable in the production of Teflon® micro-powders, and in other applications.
Some crystal structures undergo valuable changes under electron beam irradiation. Diodes, transistors, and other semiconductor products can be improved, and gemstones such as topaz, rubelita, and diamonds are colored with electron beam irradiation.
