Review of Experimental Investigations in Friction Welding Technique

Gurunath Shinde, Prakash Dabeer

Abstract

Friction welding is a solid state welding processes in which the weld is obtained by the heat generated due to forging and friction. Now a day’s eco-friendly joining of dissimilar materials is the need of the industries. The advantages of friction welding process are reduction in production time and cost saving. Friction welding is classified into two types. One type is Inertia drive friction welding and the other is Continuous drive friction welding. In continuous drive friction welding one of the work pieces is held stationary while the other is held for a certain rotating speed. The two work pieces are brought together under certain friction pressure for a certain period of time known as friction time. Then, the rotation is stopped and upset pressure is applied for a certain upset time. Then, the spindle is disengaged and the component is unloaded. In Inertia drive friction welding one part is held stationary while the other is clamped in the chuck which is attached to the flywheel. The flywheel and chuck is rotated for a certain seed to store a predetermined energy. In this paper, review of friction welding on different materials and their weld ability has been discussed in brief.
