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.
Which friction welding technology is the best fit for your aerospace or astrospace application? We break down each method and explain which part best matches each technology.
In this Whiteboard Wednesday video, MTI’s Dan Adams explains how we are able to achieve low upset with Low Force Friction Welding.
Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI) and EWI are pleased to announce collaborative work to develop MTI's newest solid-state joining technology, Low Force Friction Welding.l
