Crack-free ceramic welding at room temperature is a first

A low-power pulsed laser has been used to weld ceramic materials together in room-temperature environments for the first time. The technique, demonstrated by Javier Garay at the University of California, San Diego and colleagues, could bring about diverse new applications for electronic and optoelectronic devices. Welding is a crucial element of modern manufacturing, but it […]

Can you weld ceramics?

What makes a good construction material? There are many requirements, but one is the ability to efficiently connect different parts. Steel is almost the perfect example: you can join steel with fasteners (like nuts and bolts), by brazing, or by welding. The last of these is especially important. If we couldn’t weld metals, life would […]

Fixturing for robotic welding

Specifying and purchasing a robotic welding system can be challenging and requires predictions about future part volumes and types of jobs. A robotic system manufacturer and integrator, if you are working with one, will help you specify the best system for your application. However, how parts will be fixtured often is forgotten in this process. […]

Welding in Motorsport

We are sure you’re aware but perhaps not the extent of which…that welding is still majorly used in motorsport today. Whether it’s rally, Formula E, motorcycle, Formula 1, NASCAR or karting, welding plays a huge part in customising race cars – from welding of special gears to cylinder blocks, suspension arm strenghtening rubs to aluminium […]
