Global Friction Welding Machine Market 2018-2022
About Friction Welding Machine
Friction welding is a solid-state welding process. The mechanical friction between the workpieces in relative motion to one another generates heat along with an additional lateral force called upset. This force is generally applied to plastically displace and fuse the materials. Friction welding is a forge welding technique, wherein no melting occurs unlike traditional processes like fusion welding.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global friction welding machine market to grow at a CAGR of 4.92% during the period 2018-2022.
