Low force friction welding produces a friction weld at a fraction of the force, offering several advantages over traditional linear and rotary friction welding.
Low Force Friction Welding
Low-Force Friction Welding could help solve some problems the rail industry faces today. The welding technique, developed by Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI,) has multiple projected advantages over some over welding processes like flash-butt and thermite. Low-Force promises a stronger weld.
In part three of the “Eyes of an Engineer” series, we introduce you to two Notre Dame ESTEEM students who began working at MTI as part of their capstone thesis.
