In friction welding machine, one component is rotated and one component is held stationary. The friction welding machine part that is rotated is brought into contact with the stationary component and when enough heat has been generated to bring the components to a plastic state and the desired burn off has been achieved, rotation is stopped. More axial force is then applied between the two components resulting in a solid state bond at the interface forming a friction welded joint. Direct drive friction welding is able to weld dissimilar metal and non-ferrous metal
Advantage of Friction Welding
- Low energy consumption
- No arcs, sparks, smoke or flames
- Constant quality is maintained and monitored.
- No air hole at welding points
- No filler material, fluxor shield gas
- Ability to weld dissimilar metal.
- No particular end preparation before welding
- Welding cycle time is short and high efficiency.
