Generalized finite-element models for the electron-beam treatment of the surface of materials with significantly different thermophysical properties have been created, allowing the calculation and optimization of process conditions. For products of different geometries, taking into account the thermodynamics of the process and the temperature dependences of the properties of materials, controlling the electron beam geometry and the process cycloramas, the ranges of energy parameters of electron beam processing have been optimized. Finite-element modeling of surface heating during electron-beam processing was carried out for a flatshaped part by a stationary source with scanning, as well as when exposed to linear beam movement without scanning. To optimize electron beam reflow during soldering, a thermodynamic finite-element model is proposed that takes into account the geometric features of the cutter inserts and the thermophysical properties of their constituent materials. It is shown that taking into account the temperature dependence of the thermophysical properties of the materials makes it possible to realize electron beam processing schemes with a shorter duration of exposure to a beam of greater power.
