Low force friction welding, the robust joining process that combines friction welding and an external heat source, has been validated for metals including steels, aluminum alloys, copper, and more. Recent studies have demonstrated its great potential for titanium alloys as well.
Application of Low Force Friction Welding to a Ti-6AL-4V Alloy, written by EWI Senior Technology Leader Jerry Gould, describes this research. You are invited to download this paper – for free – by competing the form on this page.
