Linear Friction Welding Of TitaniumLinear Friction Welding Of Titanium

Linear Friction Welding is a solid-state process in which one part moves in a linear motion at high speed and is pressed against another part held stationary. The resulting friction heats the parts, causing them to forge together.

In the video below, we take a slow-motion look at the process. The method involves two pieces of Titanium being pushed together, one oscillating at a high frequency. This creates friction that heats the metals to a temperature at which they are able to join together. When the oscillation stops, the parts cool to form a forged-quality weld.
