FuseRing is cooperating with Sorsys Technologies to build demo equipment. We expect sample welds in late 2022 to late 2023.
Patents 1 & 2, the original aim was to help improve pipeline weld integrity. Further patents published and pending open new branches of manufacturing. Solid-state can be applied from tubular to flat geometry.
This technique is used in automotive axles for over a decade. Federal Mogul / Tenneco won the 2016 Pace Award for joining diesel cylinder heads using solid-state. Note: one cylinder is spun on with curls, the other joined using solid-state with smooth profile.
If it is easy, we'll be buying this new quality from offshore companies. This singular solid state weld is already classified under ASME IX Code Case.
