Casted Parts and Friction Welding – A Spinweld Success Story

By Bob M / October 23, 2015

Spinweld recently completed a casted parts  project.   The original part was a fully cast part. Because the length of the part would vary, it was difficult (costly) for the company that cast the part to produce and hang the piece efficiently in the necessary quantities.   Friction Welding the Solution for Casted Parts with Variables in Dimensions The […]


The Benefits of Friction Welding

By Bob M / October 20, 2015

Friction welding offers many benefits.  One, of which, is that of consistent parts.  Because RPM and Pressure are machine controlled, the process is consistent, with only a few controlled variables.  Another benefit is the narrow Heat Affected Zone (HAZ).  The narrower the HAZ, the more parent material properties are retained, and the stronger the weld. […]


Friction Welding Advantages, Part 3

By Bob M / October 5, 2015

Candidates for friction welding will have one cylindrical part.  Parts that have diameter changes over its length are also candidates.  With tooling, friction welding can accommodate asymmetrical parts such as a block to a rod, and unique shapes.  These parts should be parallel to each other.  Sometimes instead of a solid diameter, the use of […]

Friction Welding Advantages – Part 2

By Bob M / August 28, 2015

Friction welding is a process used to join different metals achieving 100% metal-to-metal joints, and giving parent metal properties.  No additional material or fillers are required and the process is virtually emission free.  Thus better for the environment.  One advantage is cost savings when you can find substitutions for current metal products.  We do need […]


Spinweld – Friction Welding Advantages

By Bob M / July 20, 2015

Friction welding is a form of welding where heat is generated by pressure and movement at the interface in the area of the weld.  Using a direct drive variation of friction welding, one component is attached to a motor driven unit, while the other is stationary.  The component in motion is rotated to a predetermined […]
