This article provides information on radial friction welding, which adopts the principle of rotating and compressing a solid ring around two stationary pipe. The process evolution of this welding is illustrated. The article also examines the equipment used and operating steps. It also illustrates a prototype of radial friction-welding machine and concludes with a discussion on applications that would be suitable for radial friction welding.
