Linear Friction Welding

Linear Friction Welding: A Novel Welding Technology

Linear friction welding (LFW), a novel solid state joining technology, is suitable to weld both similar and dissimilar materials. Compared with the traditional welding methods, the benefits of LFW include higher efficiency, higher material utility, less welding defects, and smaller heat-affected zone, making LFW a reliable welding method especially suitable for welding Al and Ti alloy In the past decade, MTI has developed the solutions for welding dissimilar Ti alloy, single crystal alloy and powder metallurgy superalloy.

Fields of Application:
Titanium blisks, aeronautical structures.
