Low Force Friction Welding
The use of an external energy source to raise the interface temperature of the parts being welded, reducing the process forces required to make a solid-state weld compared to traditional friction welding.
Friction Welding is more of a forging process than an actual welding process. Low-Force Friction Welding can be applied to both Linear or Rotary Friction welded parts.
MTI's double axle machine uses the latest advanced rotary friction welding technology to eliminate slow, manual part load. Here are 3 ways this friction welding machine improves axle production for the automotive industry.
Low force friction welding produces a friction weld at a fraction of the force, offering several advantages over traditional linear and rotary friction welding.
