Increases in nickel commodity market prices and recent upswings in high alloy scrap value relate to potential increases in high or superalloy raw material pricing. High alloys rich in nickel follow the publicly traded nickel commodity markets. Consistent demand over the summer, which historically lessens, and strong market trends add weight to the potential increase

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
