Spinweld – Friction Welding Advantages

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 constant speed.  Once that speed is reached, the pieces are moved together and force is applied.  Heat is generated as the surfaces rub together.  This continues for a predetermined amount of time or until a preset amount of upset occurs.  Friction welding is a low temperature, solid state welding process producing repeatable, high quality weld joints.
