In this report, Technavio analysts have predicted the wide array of future applications as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global friction welding machine market:
Wide array of future applications
Friction welding is best suited for long, longitudinal weld configurations in lap, butt, butt/lap, and fillet joints on aluminum. This type of welding can be done to all light metals such as copper alloys, aluminum alloys, zinc, magnesium, and lead. Many high melting temperature alloys can also be friction-welded. Increasing environmental concerns are leading to the increased need to reduce weight in many vehicular applications. Aluminum is mainly used in transport vehicles such as trailers and trucks.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for engineering tools, “Friction welding is used for redesigning cooling blocks in a heavy-duty cutting machine. In this process, two blocks are bonded by friction welding to form one structure instead of one single large extrusion. It is a cost-effective method of production. The penetration is about 15mm.”
