Machine-Monitored and -Controlled Linear Friction Welders

Taylor-Winfield Technologies’ linear friction welders use solid-state bond welding to join parts of the same or different material in various geometries. Operators can adjust frequency and amplitude during the process.

Taylor-Winfield Technologies Inc.’s (Youngstown, OH) compact linear friction welders range in size from 10 tons to 150 tons depending on the force needed. One part is held stationary and the other oscillates at a high frequency to create friction. When enough friction is generated, it produces enough heat to bring the material to a plasticized state where the parts are forged together. When the oscillation stops, the parts cool to form a solid-state bond and the flash is removed. This process produces a weld that’s typically stronger than the parent material.

Providing 30 tons of force in a footprint of less than 60 square feet, this welder uses digital controls and an advanced electro-mechanical system to create precisely controlled sinusoidal oscillation. The machine controls the acceleration and deacceleration to minimize vibration and stress. It also features an easy-to-use touchscreen PLC for setting up weld recipes, process monitoring and data acquisition. The result is a machine that provides precise control and creates the best possible bond between two parts.
