P&A International hits milestone in friction welding
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 30, 2013 ) DongGuan, China -- After two years of work, researchers at P&A International have reached a milestone in an ongoing effort to use a friction welding technique to bond Titanium plates.
Based in China, P&A International is continuously investing in new developments for the manufacturing industry to help its customers meet new market challenges and demands.
While the technique known as friction stir welding PA International has been around for many years, until now it has primarily been used on aluminium. The skilled researchers and engineers at P&A International have been experimenting with friction stir welding titanium plates as part of its research.
We believe this development could have major implications in the industry. Its an idea that was once considered unlikely because of the physical properties of the ultra-light material. However our results show that it is possible, and this is very exciting for Metal fabrication, said the P&A International spokesperson.
The welding technique uses a small pin that rotates and moves along the material, under more than 3,000 pounds of pressure, and spins at about 700 rotations per minute. The temperature then climbs to about 1,950 degrees Fahrenheit because of the friction generated by the rotating pin. As a result, this transforms the metal into a "plastic-paste" state, and the material is bonded under the high pressure.
The Metal fabricator says that this process has the benefit of being more efficient than traditional welding techniques, which will ultimately put its customers at an advantage.
P&A International uses cutting edge technology, equipment and techniques to fabricate customised metal products from aluminium, steel, zinc plated steel, stainless steel, brass and copper. With years in the industry, its experienced engineers can provide anything from single sheet metal part or sub-assembly of stamped metal parts to turnkey solutions for mechanical and electrical assemblies.
No matter what your Sheet metal fabrication needs are, we can offer the right solution for your business. We strive to provide an exceptional customer service and technology, so you meet your budgets and timescales every time, the spokesperson said.
This development is just one of the ways we are advancing our services and the industry as a whole. Stay tuned for more!
