Episode 42 – Interview with Steve Dodds, Technology Manager at TWI Ltd

In our first episode of 2020, we bring you an interview with Steve Dodds, head of Friction & Forge Processes at TWI based in Cambridge, U.K.

Steve educated us on ‘friction stir welding’ which is a solid-state joining process that uses frictional heat generated by a rotating tool to join materials. This is a process used in many applications but interestingly it is used on all modern space rockets, and also more importantly to us, on electric vehicles when the battery enclosure is manufactured. We are sure you will learn a lot from this episode.

If there are any other subjects you would like us to cover or guests you would like us to interview please let us know via our website, or on any of our social media pages. We would love to hear from you!
