Linear Friction Welding
Linear friction welding is a process that uses heat from friction to weld things. It can join materials extremely fast. It can take as little as a second to complete.
Why else it this method used?
- In addition to speed, there are a few other benefits. Very little prep is needed. Surfaces do not need to be thoroughly treated beforehand.
- The method produces no harmful fumes. Unlike traditional welding methods
How friction welding is done?
The materials are placed inside the welding machine. They’re then tightly pushed together. One material moves quickly against the other. This creates a lot of friction. The resulting heat joins the parts together. It’s the preferred method for assembly of turbine engines. But it is also used to build cars, ships and trains.
