White Paper: the role of friction welding processes in manufacturing today
Discover how friction welding processes provide an efficient and sustainable method of achieving high integrity similar and dissimilar material bonds.
4 February 2021
The question that engineers and manufacturers ask when considering their production joining and manufacturing processes is - can we do this better, cheaper and more efficiently?
Joining similar, dissimilar or exotic materials directly to each other with a high integrity bond is the holy grail of industrial manufacturing. The benefits of achieving this are to reduce cost, increase quality, efficiency and reliability. All are major considerations for OEM’s competing in the global market place and who need to establish their positions with innovative, quality and cost-effective products.
