Rotary Friction Welding
Rotary Friction Welding is a solid-state process in which one part is rotated at high speed and is pressed against another part that is held stationary. The resulting friction heats the parts, causing them to forge together.
MTI is the only company to offer all three forms of Rotary Friction Welding - Direct Drive, Inertia & Hybrid.
*Can be built as hybrid machines. Hybrid model machines max diameters and weld areas are dependent on motor type.
Friction Welding offers the broadest capabilities for joining dissimilar metals helping you save money and achieve lightweighting for your application.SEE WELDABLE MATERIALS
