LIFT Off Replay: Coldwater Machine Company

An enhanced rotational friction welding process from Coldwater Machine Company was the focus of last month’s LIFT Off webinar series.

Coldwater’s Mike Spodar took us through their SpinMeld technology and how they measure welds for consistency and quality throughout the rotational friction process.
