Developed jointly by Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI) and EWI, Low Force Friction Welding is the newest form of solid-state joining. It uses an external energy source to raise the interface temperature of the parts being welded, reducing process forces required to make a solid-state weld compared to traditional friction welding.
This technology has already been successfully tested and studied with metals and metal-based alloys.
A new white paper, Low Force Friction Welds in 4130 Steel: A Preliminary Microstructural Characterization, written by EWI’s Senior Technology Advisor Jerry Gould and MTI’s President & CEO Dan Adams, offers new research and findings.
