Spin Welding

November 21st, 2013

Spin WeldingSpin welding is a technique that fuses together two separate parts with the use of friction-generated heat. In spin welding, friction is generated by one piece kept still (usually with a vice) while the other is spun quickly and held against it. The resulting friction from the spun part held against the stationery part generates intense heat, which then fuses the two pieces together. Usually spin welding is utilized for the fusion of two metal-based pieces, as metal responds most effectively to friction-generated heat. » Read more: Spin Welding
