There is no reason companies wouldn’t want to incorporate friction welding into their manufacturing process. From cost-effectiveness to time saving and consistent quality to reduced waste, the benefits are many.
Spinweld assisted with friction weld trials and mechanical testing /characterization of welded parts for the repair design/plug for a cast bronze alloy. This part was designed between Spinweld and MetalTek to fit requirements for friction welding machinery with a cup-cone casting repair configuration. Weld trial samples of plug and hole configuration were successful in the repair […]
Spinweld’s Friction welding Tube to Disc is the third joint type we will discuss in our 6 part series of the different welding joints, bonds, or union types in 2018. Similar to a bar to a plate, tube to a disc consists of a smaller round part to a larger round part or not round part but with a hole […]
Spinweld’s Friction welding Bar to Plate is the second joint type we will discuss in our 6 part series of the different welding joints, bonds, or union types in 2018. Bar to plate, smaller round part to larger round part or not round part, are examples of the commonly used forging terminology a Near Net […]
Friction welding bar to bar is the first joint type we will discuss in our 6 part series of the different welding joints, bonds, or union types in 2018. It is the most commonly used type and its application is endless with uses in construction machinery, hydraulic equipment, power generation, renewable energy, medical, recreation, electrical equipment, and more. […]
The origin of friction welding and 6 basic joint types dates back to the Soviet Union in 1956 when first experiments and patents on the process were issued. In the early 1960’s American friction welding companies Caterpillar, Rockwell International, and American Manufacturing Foundry filed patents and developed proprietary machines for the friction welding process. Rotational […]
In January 2014 I made it a personal mission to give back to the industry I serve by supporting my local educational community. Residing and working in Waukesha county led my decision to join Waukesha County Technical College’s(WCTC) Machine Tool Operation and Tool & Die(MTO & TD) advisory committee. WCTC is one of many skilled […]
