Linear Friction Welding with ACB presses

Reduced machining costs for the aerospace industry.

ACB Aries Alliance specialists in Sheet Stretch forming and Linear friction welding

Linear Friction Welding is a solid state welding at forging temperature where the heat is generated by the friction.

    BENEFITS OF LINEAR FRICTION WELDING:

    • Solid state welding at forging temperature
    • The heat is generated by the linear friction
    • Near net shape manufacturing improves buy-to-fly ratio
    • Reduces machining costs.

    LINEAR FRICTION WELDING PROCESS:

    Linear Friction Welding is a solid state welding at forging temperature.

    The heat is generated by the friction and the process is generally divided into 4 phases:

    • Contact: the 2 parts are put in contact
    • Conditioning: pressure is applied and oscillation motion starts
    • Burn-off: pressure and motion are still applied and the material is expelled
    • Forge: oscillations are stopped and pressure is held during cool down
