Welding Dissimilar Metals

By Bob M / May 19, 2016

Welding Dissimilar Metals is desirable for many reasons.  Whether you have an issue with mechanical wear problems, or a high-temperature situation, different metal properties are required for different applications.  More often, Friction Welding accounts for nearly half the welding of Dissimilar Metals.  Benefits of Welding Dissimilar Metals include: Cost reduction substituting lessor grade material Saves […]

Spin Welding / Friction Welding – Is It For Me?

By Bob M / December 18, 2015

Spin Welding – or Friction Welding – is a controlled machining process for joining SIMILAR or DISSIMILAR (Bi-Metal) combinations of materials. The ultimate goal of spin welding is to have a 100% weld throughout the full joint interface. This means, given suitable materials, the weld union or interface strength is equal in strength to that of the parent […]

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. […]

Our Customers Get Quality Parts

By Bob M / March 6, 2015

We provide that by: Favorable metallurgical characteristics welds are often the result of Friction Welding and surpass the strength levels of Oxyacetylene Welding, MIG Welding, TIG Welding, Electric Beam Welding (EB), Resistance Welding and Braising. The Friction Welding process bonds together materials with different chemical and thermal properties. This creates a bond with friction welding that is […]

Effects or differences of HAZ (Heat Affected Zone) between conventional welding and friction welding

By Bob M / June 30, 2014

A common question in friction welding is what are the effects or differences of HAZ, Heat Affected Zone between conventional welding and friction welding.  There is a physical, visual, and metallurgical difference. CONVENTIONAL WELDING                          FRICTION WELDING      HEAT AFFECTED ZONE (HAZ) in Friction Welding Less extensive than conventional weld HAZ Narrower width HAZ than conventional […]

Summertime and Friction Welding

By Bob M / June 20, 2014

Happy Summer!  The first day of summer is June 21st, 2014!  Here are some fun facts about Summer – Fact #1 – The Eiffel Tower grows in summer. This historic structure is made of iron. Metal expands with heat. As a result, the Eiffel Tower can grow more than six inches in hot weather. Fact […]
