Picture this: You’re a skilled metal fabricator tasked with creating a heating element for an industrial oven. You have a variety of metals to choose from, but for this high-temperature, oxidation-resistant application, Kanthal alloys are your top choice. Now, the question is, how do you join these Kanthal components together efficiently and effectively? The answer lies in percussion welding.

Strong and Durable Welds: Kanthal alloys are known for their ability to withstand scorching temperatures and resist corrosion. To harness their full potential, you need a welding technique that can match their strength and durability. Percussion welding rises to the challenge. This method creates a bond that’s as robust as the parent metal itself, ensuring that your Kanthal alloy remains intact even under extreme conditions.

No Need for Filler Material: What sets percussion welding apart is its ability to create pristine welds without the need for filler materials. This is particularly advantageous for Kanthal alloys, as filler materials can potentially react with the alloy, compromising its integrity. With percussion welding, you can achieve clean, strong, and durable welds, keeping your Kanthal components in pristine condition.

Quick and Efficient Welding: In the fast-paced world of high-volume production environments, efficiency is paramount. This is where percussion welding truly shines. For instance, the MTI percussion welder system can produce up to an astonishing 100 welds per minute. Imagine the possibilities—large quantities of Kanthal alloy parts manufactured quickly and efficiently, significantly reducing production time and costs.

No Distortion or Deformation: Precision matters, especially when you’re dealing with high temperatures and frequent thermal cycling. A poorly welded connection can lead to distortion or deformation, compromising performance over time. With a percussion welder, you can achieve clean and precise welds without introducing any unwanted changes to the Kanthal alloy. Your heating elements will operate flawlessly.

Suitable for Dissimilar Metals: Kanthal alloys are often used in combination with other metals to achieve specific properties, such as corrosion resistance, strength, and durability. Percussion welding’s ability to join dissimilar metals makes it a perfect fit for these applications. Whether you’re working with a mix of materials, percussion welding ensures a reliable and durable connection.

Conclusion: If you’re tasked with producing large quantities of Kanthal alloy parts, look no further than percussion welding. Its ability to create strong and durable welds, combined with its speed and suitability for dissimilar metals, makes it the optimal choice for anyone working with Kanthal alloys. Efficiency, reliability, and durability—percussion welding checks all the boxes.
