What is Friction Welding?

  • Friction welding is a solid-state process that is achieved through frictional heat.
  • This heat is generated by controlled contact of two components until material reaches its plastic state, at which time plasticised material begins to form layers that intertwine with one another.
  • The friction welding machine controls this contact through a series of unique parameters for rotational speed (rpm’s), axial force and time.
  • Once these parameters are established, they are recorded, stored and then repeated with each cycle of the machine.

Why Friction Welding?

  • No filler material, flux or shield gas Environmentally clean; no arcs, sparks, smoke or flames
  • Surface impurities burn through during process
  • Narrow heat affected zones
  • Ability to weld dissimilar metals
  • Weld strength usually as strong or stronger than the weaker material being joined
  • Operators do not require manual operating skills
  • Simple integration into the manufacturing area
  • Easily automated for mass production
  • Minimal plant requirements to install
