Friction welding is a joining process based on the generation of heat throw the friction between two components.
The friction is transforming the Kinetic Energy of a motor in Heat. This increase of temperature allows to bring the two component into a plastic state into the area involved on the join.
The subsequent linear pressure create an interpenetration of the plasticized materials, binding them indissolubly in a process similar to the hot forging.
Scaglia has been dealing with this technology since 1979, for the production of light alloy bobbins for yarn twisting machines. Year after year this process has been improved now the Company has a great in-depth knowledge in the welding.
Friction welding has become widely utilized due to the many advantages that this process guarantees, such as:
production cost reduction,
top reliability and great precision of all the joints.
capability to weld components made of different material (table of capability).
