Low force friction welding, a technology developed jointly by EWI and Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI), combines resistance-based pre-heating with a translational relative motion to create a joint. The process has been successfully tested on metals and metal-based alloys.
One such study is reviewed in Low Force Friction Welds in 4130 Steel: A Preliminary Microstructural Characterization, a paper by EWI’s Senior Technology Advisor Jerry Gould and MTI’s President & CEO Dan Adams. To download this paper at no charge, simply fill out the form on this page.
