Hybrid multi-tasking machine -FSW

Friction Stir Welding

Friction Stir Welding(FSW) technologies have been integrated with a machining center. All processes from raw material to finished workpiece can be done in one machine.
Friction Stir Welding creates heat by friction by exerting pressure on a round tool to weld the materials.
After welding, the welded surface is finish machined to meet the accuracy and surface finish requirements.

 

Process from machining to FSW

 

Advantages of FSW

  • Highly-robust for the joining of metals, inter-metallic, thermoplastics and hybrid joints
  • Zero emmisions (no fumes, dust, spatter, plasma or X-rays) during the process
  • Significantly lower capital investment compared to decided stir welding platforms
