Friction welding for aluminum and other materials

Friction welding is a pressure welding method for connecting two materials using heat. Find out everything you need to know about the friction welding process!

How does friction welding work?

Our friction welding machine moves two parts towards each other until their contact areas touch. The heat created during this process leads to a plastification of the material. The pressure applied to both parts leads to a high-quality connection.

During friction welding the heat-affected zone (HAZ) is rather small, which is a big advantage compared to other welding methods. The low operating temperature reduces changes in the fabric. Furthermore, only little molten mass is formed in the heat-affected zone. Thus, a neat, long-lasting, high-quality connection is produced.

Friction welded threaded connection for drill pipes

Friction welding by EMDE

On the one hand, the friction welding process is used in the production of our own products, such as threaded joints for drilling pipes. This improves the quality of our products significantly and is particularly important for specialist foundation engineering.

On the other hand, we offer you friction welding for your individual welded connection with pipe diameters up to 219 mm (8.6 inch). A constant parameter and process monitoring by our specialist welding engineers guarantee consistently high quality.

If you have further questions about friction welding and the solutions we offer, contact our sales team. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
