At the Chair of Timber Constructions of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) tests were carried out to join wooden work pieces by friction welding without any additional welding deposit. It could be determined that this kind of technology, which is mainly used for thermoplastics and metal, can also be applied to wood. Tests were carried out to determine the influence of the processing parameters like welding pressure, frequency and amplitude of the circular movement on… CONTINUE READING
