I've never seen this shit before but it looks pretty cool. I would guess its tensile strength isn't quite as good as a conventional weld but still pretty damn good especially the stud/plunge method.

Many different types of surface welding vids on the playlist on the left.

That must make a god awful noise.
Plus you have to machine a piece just so you can weld it to something. That's a lot of effort for a sub-par weld, but everything has a use. I can see the use for the radial friction one, though. Even with stick welding you'd have to shave to the center and weld up.
