Inertia Friction Welder for Aerospace Components – The Power of Friction

When talking about rocket science, of course, most of the methods that make aerospace components come together are rather advanced, much more complicated than most of us normal folks could stand to comprehend in one sitting without falling asleep.
This time, we check out an aerospace engineering technique that seems rather rudimentary as it uses nothing more than sheer friction to weld together a couple of components with lots of pressure and heat thrown together into the mix.
When the process unfolds on camera, it ends up being quite mesmerizing to watch as two components are forced together and put into motion, creating a glowing red heat that eventually manages to fuse the pair together in what hopes to be an everlasting bond.
Check out the video below that goes inside of this process of welding jet engine components and allows you to have a front row seat to watch it all unfold. Are you entranced by this process that combines several elements for one tight grip?
