Working Principle of Friction Welding

Working of Friction welding is carryout by professional who are knowledgeable in the field. Though it is not a difficult task and it is easy to learn. In a previous article, I enlighten on What is Friction Welding? – its Applications, Advantages and Disadvantages. Today you’ll get to know

Working of Friction Welding

Working of friction welding

Before any operation will be performed, the surface of the work pieces should be prepared. One of the work pieces is mounted on a driven rotor and the other remains a stationary position.

The rotor helps in rotating the work piece against the other in order to create friction between them. The rotor rotates on a high speed and a little pressure force is applied toward the stationary work piece which takes away dirt from the work piece surface. The rotor stopped when temperature reaches it desire limit.

At this point a very high pressure is force through the stationary work piece when they are already in plastic form. The pressure is applied continuously until the whole weld is formed.

And that is it for this article, working principle of friction welding. I hopefully believe the knowledge is attained. Freely ask questions and share with friends. Thanks for reading!
