Why friction welding is vital for Aerospace applications

The demand for larger and more fuel efficient aircraft means that aero-engines are growing in thrust, temperature, and size. Withstanding the higher temperatures requires critical aircraft and aerospace components made with such materials as superalloy, bimetallic, stainless steel, and aluminum. While these materials can be difficult and many times impossible to weld with conventional methods, they can be joined with the friction welding process. MTI-designed rotary and linear friction welders of all sizes are in use throughout the aerospace industry, including the largest capacity friction welder made today.
