The RITM machine
RITM is designed for surface treatment of materials by a pulsed electron beam;
it ensures melting and evaporation of thin surface layers on metal tools of different applications.
RITMТs performance characteristics:
Maximum electron energy Ц 35 keV;
Average electron energy Ц 10 keV;
Beam current Ц up to 20 kA;
Pulse duration Ц 2-4 μs;
Beam diameter Ц up to 10 cm;
Beam energy density Ц up to 20 J/cm2;
Non-uniformity of the energy density across beam - less than 20%;
Pulse frequency Ц up to 0.2 Hz;
Working gas pressure Ц 0.3-1 mTorr;
Power consumption Ц less than 3 kW.
RITMТs closest analogue is a PIKA FINISH MACHINE, produced by Sodick Inc.
