Friction Stir Welding
Integration of machining and Friction Stir Welding
FSW unlike conventional welding, stirs material by friction for welding, producing a clean welded surface.
Features of stationary shoulder friction stir welding
FSW performs stationary shoulder friction stir welding. Unlike other friction stir welding systems that have both probe tool and shoulder turn, the shoulder is fixed to the headstock to reduce the load to the spindle bearings and to ensure a long machine service life.
Stationary shoulder friction stir welding has a smaller heat affected and softened area, to provide unsurpassed welded surfaces with minimum burrs.
- From friction stir welding to part machining done in a single machine - considerable reduction in in-process time and in-process inventory
- Friction stir welding provides high-quality welding with a low cost when compared to conventional welding
- Designed for the welding of components in the semiconductor manufacturing equipment and electric vehicle industries
