Application of Micro-friction Welding for Dissimilar Metal Joints

January 13, 2020

Friction welding, a solid-state process that uses high-speed spindles to weld materials, is notably effective for joining dissimilar materials. EWI has recently developed a new micro-friction welder for small-scale, dissimilar metals joining. The system has been demonstrated on both aluminum-to-titanium and aluminum-to-stainless joints.
