Low force friction welding, a hybrid technology developed by EWI and MTI, 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.
Low Force Friction Welding of Bimetallics: Aluminum 6061 to 1020 Steel Tubes, written by EWI Senior Technology Leader Jerry Gould with Zach Roelofs, explores the capabilities of using this technology tubular geometries with dissimilar metals.
