  • The use of a precise electron beam for machining. The intense heat of the beam vaporizes the desired locations, which are removed in the vacuum where the machining occurs. Used, for instance, for removing material in hard to reach places, for machining complex patterns, or to work with materials which are otherwise difficult to machine. Its abbreviation is EBM.
