Forge Bonding – What Is It?

Forge bonding, as discussed by Don Cooper and Mat Rybicki, is a cutting-edge technology that falls under the category of friction welding, according to ASME Section 9. It distinguishes itself from conventional welding by not generating molten metal, instead utilizing a forging process that produces significantly less thermal energy. This method offers a novel approach to metal joining, particularly beneficial in applications like storage tank repairs where minimizing thermal impact is crucial.

Hi I’m Don Cooper, the CEO and founder of innovator and today’s session is part of a series that we’re offering on above ground storage tank repairs. And today we are talking about the Forge bonding repair method.

going to be talking about a technology which we have termed forge bonding, according to ASME, Section nine, it’s actually classified under friction welding, but it’s it’s more of a forging process than a welding process. At least traditional welding process because it does not create any molten metal. It produces a tiny fraction of the thermal energy that traditional arc welding would produce.
