A new wire joining process for wires with sub-millimeter diameters applying the rotary swaging was investigated. The basic idea is to join two wire ends by a tube segment. In the study different material combinations using steel (AISI304) and copper (CW004A) were examined. Further the realization of a form-locked joint was investigated. The formed samples were tested by optical microscopy and tensile testing and compared to spot welded samples.
