One of the projects involves uses ul...
- What you need to know about Friction Welding Processes
Friction has been used to weld parts for both new make and for repair for many decades. The friction welding family of processes encompasses many different variants, including rotary friction welding (inertia, direct-drive, and radial), linear friction welding, and more recently, friction stir weldi...
- New ALMMII Headquarters Will Be Located in Detroit
Officials from the American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing Innovation Institute (ALMMII) and the city of Detroit have announced that the new $148 million lightweight metals manufacturing institute, announced in February by President Obama will locate in the Detroit neighborhood of Corktown.
- What are Dendrites?
Have you ever heard a Metallurgist or a Welding Engineer talk about a dendritic structure, or secondary dendrite arm spacing, and wondered what those terms meant? When metals solidify, the solid/liquid interface in most cases is not planar; rather 'fingers' of solid jut forward ahead of the solidif...
- Ultrasonic Metal Welding for Lithium-Ion Battery Cells
The three most common metal to metal joints in a lithium-ion battery pack are foil to tab, tab to tab, and tab to bus. All three joints pose joining challenges, but of the three, welding multiple layers of foil to a tab is the most challenging. The joint is often made up of dissimilar metals, the me...
- What is your definition of a skilled welder?
In my last blog Where are all the skilled welders I received many good answers, ideas, and comments through my social media page Linkedin. The question that kept reoccurring was 'what is the definition of a skilled welder?'. Although everyone has their own opinion, most would agree that being a s...
- Rutile Flux vs. Basic Flux: Differentiating Flux Types Aides in Flux Cored Arc Welding Wire Selection
Today’s market has many gas shielded flux cored arc welding (FCAW) wires. The task of selecting the right wire for a particular application can be intimidating and confusing. The majority of FCAW wires that are common to the heavy fabrication steel industry are categorized into just two types:...
- Dissimilar Materials Joining
Design engineers are increasingly faced with the need to join dissimilar materials as they are seeking creative new structures or parts with tailor-engineered properties. Sometimes a part needs high-temperature resistance in one area, good corrosion resistance in another. Structures may need toughne...
