Friction welding is a solid phase welding, in which two similar or dissimilar materials are made to rub each other to produce sufficient heat at the interface and when the impurities at the interface are removed as flash, stopping the relative motion of jobs and applying a forge welding force produces a strong metallic bond between the materials.
Very short cycle time;
Ideal for mass production;
Savings in costly material if the bi-metallic component is used;
Low heat-affected zone and hence semi-finished components can be welded ;
Low energy consumption;
No edge preparation, filler material, shielding gas, spattering, fumes, and radiation;
Excellent welding: joint as strong or stronger than parent material;
Metals as diverse as Cu to Al, Cu or Al to steel, Titanium to stainless steel, etc. can be welded.
