Add KanBan inventory and logistical support services and you’ve got AFW's Friction Welding Advantage!
Friction Welding Advantage
Enables joining of dissimilar materials normally not compatible for welding by other joining methods (See “List of Material Combinations”) Creates
narrow, heat-affected zone
Consistent and repetitive process
Joint preparation is minimal – saw cut surface used most commonly
Faster Turn-Around Times - compared to the long lead time of forging, which are currently 6 months or longer Greatly increases
design flexibility - choose appropriate materials for each area of a blank
Suitable for diverse quantities - from single prototypes to high-volume production
No fluxes, filler material, or gases required
Environmentally friendly process – no fumes, gases, or smoke generated
Solid state process – no possibility of porosity or slag inclusions
Creates cast or forge-link blanks - without expensive tooling or minimum quantity requirements
Reduces machining labor, thereby reducing perishable tooling costs, while increasing capacity Full surface weld gives
superior strength in critical areas
Reduces raw material costs in bi-metal applications. Expensive materials are only used where necessary in the blank
