Working of Friction Welding

Working of friction welding

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

The rotor rotates the workpiece against the other in order to create friction between them. It rotates at a high speed and a little pressure force is applied toward the stationary workpiece, which is done takes away dirt from the workpiece surface. The rotor stopped when the temperature reaches its limit.

At this point, very high pressure is forced through the stationary workpiece when they are already in plastic form. The pressure is applied continuously until the whole weld is formed.
