Linear Friction Welders

LINEAR FRICTION WELDING: SOLID STATE BOND WELDING FOR NEARLY ANY METAL WELDING APPLICATION

Taylor-Winfield Technologies’ linear friction welders are designed utilizing the most significant patented breakthrough in linear friction welding. 

Linear Friction Welders use Solid State Bond Welding that has been proven to produce the best solid state bond between parts of the same or different material, various geometries and is applicable for nearly any metal welding application.

TWT’s breakthrough technology is superior to traditional linear friction welding for a variety of reasons:

ADVANTAGES OF LINEAR FRICTION WELDERS

Linear Friction Welders use Solid State Bond Welding and provides increased performance and accuracy over traditional manufacturing processes.

Here’s why:

  • LFW is the most robust solid state bonding process
  • LFW can produce welds faster than other welding processes
  • LFW is flexible enough to join different shapes, sizes, and dissimilar materials
  • LFW can join long parts together
  • LFW can make multiple welds simultaneously
  • LFW can pre-heat metals during the process
  • LFW can weld powdered metal, castings, forgings, and wrought materials

 

Other Advantages of Our Technology Include:

  • Limited joint preparation required
  • No solidification flaws, gas porosity, separation or slag inclusion
  • Eliminates human error- the process is completely machine controlled and monitored
  • Materials and Geometry are pre-calculated parameters
  • Easily monitor process parameters and weld history
  • No special foundations or power supplies are required
  • The process can be mathematically scaled
    “Smart machine” capabilities

Let us verify your parts production process by starting in our R&D laboratory to verify weldability, run parts and size your machine custom to your needs.

LITERATURE

Linear Friction Welding has been predominately used in the aerospace industry, but because of the size of the machines, their price tag and many other reasons- LWF hasn’t reached mainstream manufacturing.

UNTIL NOW… Taylor-Winfield Technologies has developed a line of LFW machines that are breaking the barriers into mainstream manufacturing. Check out this video on how we did it!
