Structural Transition Joints

For over 50 years, marine, defense, train and automotive industries have benefited from NobelClad’s expertly welded clad bi-metal strips to provide mechanical fastener alternatives, superior welding, corrosion-resistance and fatigue strength.

As fully welded components, clad structural transition joints eliminate the risk of corrosion and eliminate the need for fasteners in design, while providing better lifetime durability and strength.

Many applications require an assembly between heterogeneous metal materials that cannot be assembled by thermal processes, due to a difference in melting temperature or due to chemical incompatibility. A structural transition joint is a bi-metal strip used as an intermediate piece to weld non-weldable structures.

Structural transition joints are generally cut from a flat plate.
Thickness range from 1 mm to 100 mm.
Maximum size of mother plates 4x12 meters.
More than 300 metals combinations are possible.
After saw cut or water jet cutting, different shapes of any sizes are possible (round, cylinders, beams, blocks).
