Friction welding with tubes in place of solids reduces overall weight requirements and material costs.
Applying friction welding techniques to thin wall materials provide higher strength properties and increased life over conventional joining processes.
Near final shape has the clearest advantage to oversized friction welding components. As a project manager or engineer, the customer has choices in material types and sizes, machining options, and tooling designs to reduce costs and keep projects in budget.
Friction welding is not limited to round stock. Shapes and configurations, at any stage (rough, semi-finished, or finish), are viable applications with friction welding, the metal joining process.
Friction welding is not limited to two material types or sizes. Multiple materials and sizes are used for reduction in tooling costs and optimizing near final size.
Friction welding is a well-established process developed in the 1890s and is widely accepted throughout many different industries and global markets.
Near final shape has the clearest advantage to friction welding with similar metals. As a project manager or engineer, the customer has choices in material sizes, machining options, and tooling designs to reduce costs and keep projects in budget.
By applying cost saving friction welding techniques to your manufacturing process, substantial tooling and production costs can be saved by simplifying designs of castings, forgings, burnouts, and stampings.
