CoreFlow: Friction Welding Technology

TWI has invented a highly disruptive, new sub-surface machining technique called ‘CoreFlow.’

The solid state process is a development of friction stir welding which allows for sub-surface networks to be integrated into structures.

This revolutionary new technology already has potential uses in heat exchangers and cooling systems as well as for integrated fluid management and light-weighting.

Allowing for a range of applications from anti-icing of aeroplane wings and flight control surfaces to heat reduction, hydraulic lubrication, embedding instrumentation, and more, this new technique can be used in a variety of industries.

This event introduces the new technique as well as explaining how it can be beneficial to industries ranging from aerospace and automotive to I.T., communication and beyond.

Upcoming event to be confirmed.
