Rotary friction welding: an efficient and cost-effective means of joining a wide variety of materials
Rotary friction welding: an efficient and cost-effective means to joining a wide variety of materials

As a fabrication process, welding has been utilized within manufacturing for decades. Traditional welding methods, however, aren’t always suitable for components intended for use within high-impact applications, such as drilling, automotive or power generation.
Friction welding delivers an enhanced level of weld integrity, that in turn delivers a superior end product/component. Rotary and linear friction techniques can satisfy industrial joining needs across multiple sectors, though its utilization is still relatively low across the wider manufacturing spectrum, despite affording a number of significant advantages, such as: superior joint strength
very low risk for safety critical joints
economical, with fast welding times
ability to weld wide range of similar & dissimilar materials.

TWI, AFW & KUKA Systems UK Ltd. possess a wealth of established and proven expertise within the field of friction welding and recognize the importance of quality component manufacture within the supply chain. So just how can these manufacturing principles be applied?

Whether through capital investment, or subcontracting, this cost effective joining method is still hugely underutilized. Meet some of the industry’s leading authorities on friction welding and understand the plethora of benefits that can be achieved.
