DISSIMILAR METALS, UNMATCHED RESULTS
CUT COSTS, NOT QUALITY
There’s no need to use an expensive material for your whole part if only one section requires it. Friction welding can help you save money by utilizing a more affordable material where it’s not as crucial.
TRIM WEIGHT WHERE IT MATTERS
Bi-metallic friction welding can help achieve your lightweighting goals by only using heavier materials on your part where it’s absolutely necessary.
UNLEASH YOUR PART’S FULL POTENTIAL
Not all welding methods are created equal. Friction welding has the broadest capabilities for joining dissimilar metals.
