Equipment for Solid State Stir Welding of High Temperature Materials, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Equipment for Solid State Stir Welding of High Temperature Materials, Phase I
Stir welding generates high-quality joints in fabricated structure and is the baseline joining process for most NASA aluminum alloy structures such as cryogenic tanks and lightweight structures. Incorporating ultrasonic vibration to critical stir welding machine components will enable and expand stir welding to other high-strength, high-temperature alloys using solid state joining. More »
