What are the advantages of friction welding?

There are many advantages with this joining process including the absence of toxic fumes or splatter, no consumables are required to produce the weld, and it is a process that can be easily automated which makes it perfect for industrial use. Problems such as, solidification cracking, porosity, solute redistribution are not a problem when friction stir welding is used. There are fewer defects when using friction stir welding. This process is also a better welding process for the environment. Visit our friction stir welding page to learn more,
