Copper to Aluminum Friction Welding allows your design department the ability to join Dissimilar Metals, thus allowing your engineer/designer the flexibility to tailor fit your product so it will perform as you want it. We recently had the opportunity of assisting one of our customers with a quick turnaround R&D project involving aluminum to copper.
Welding Dissimilar Metals is desirable for many reasons. Whether you have an issue with mechanical wear problems, or a high-temperature situation, different metal properties are required for different applications. More often, Friction Welding accounts for nearly half the welding of Dissimilar Metals. Benefits of Welding Dissimilar Metals include: Cost reduction substituting lessor grade material Saves
Friction Welding – Economical Welding has been around for years, and is one of the best kept secrets in the Metal Fabricating Industry. The method reduces time, energy use and toxic byproducts of conventional welding processes. Friction Welding involves a rotating tool, generating the precise amount of friction for the materials intended to be joined.
Spin Welding – or Friction Welding – is a controlled machining process for joining SIMILAR or DISSIMILAR (Bi-Metal) combinations of materials. The ultimate goal of spin welding is to have a 100% weld throughout the full joint interface. This means, given suitable materials, the weld union or interface strength is equal in strength to that of the parent
With this being the week of Thanksgiving, it is expected that people will take the time to be thankful. However, this attitude is far more powerful to the people who are grateful daily. Since 2000, psychologists have conducted numerous studies on the effect and benefits of gratitude. Gratitude, it turns out, is a very powerful
Spinweld recently completed a cast parts project. The original part was a fully cast part. Because the length of the part would vary, it was difficult (costly) for the company that cast the part to produce and hang the piece efficiently in the necessary quantities. Friction Welding the Solution for Cast Parts with Variables in
