Linear Benefits Of Friction Welding

Would a repeatable, high speed, CNC based joining process with a recordable history improve quality and efficiency at your company?

Yes, it is that fast!

Imagine a Cycle Time of a just a few seconds for solid-state fusion welding of metals in similar or dissimilar materials with narrow heat affected zones.

And It Is Strong!

Linear Friction Welded joints equal or exceed the strength of parent materials. The joint is non-porous, leak-proof, and fully machinable like solid billet.

How much easier would the elimination of fluxes, gasses, porosity, and slag inclusions make your work life?

What if Joint Preparation was made easier by using saw cut or sheared surfaces instead of milling or turning first?
