Friction stir welding

Heat is generated by friction between the rotating tool and the workpiece material, which leads to a softened region near the FSW tool. While the tool is traversed . The development of this process was a significant change from the conventional rotary motion and linear reciprocating friction . It is used already in routine, as well as critical applications, for the joining of structural components made of aluminium and its alloys. Indee it has been convincingly demonstrated that the process . The FSW process requires no filler material, gas or other consumables.

This joining technique is energy efficient, environment friendly, and versatile. Friction Stir Welding (FSW). In particular, it can be used to join high-strength aerospace aluminum alloys and other metallic alloys that are hard to weld by conventional fusion welding. The new welding technique—being marketed to industry—utilizes frictional heating combined with forging pressure to produce high-strength bonds.

The KUKA friction stir welding solution can be customized for your production requirements. Find out more about our relevant products here! A unique and innovative method of jointing metals, friction stir welding uses frictional heat combined with precisely controlled forging pressure to produce high integrity, full penetration welded joints that are virtually defect free. Why settle for automatic riveting or traditional fusion welding processes when friction stir welding is faster and easier?

PaR Systems combines the most advanced process knowledge base and advanced technologies to provide you with I-STIR: your total-value friction stir welding solution.

MegaStir offers the latest in friction stir welding ( FSW) tools and technology. Designed for endurance and quality welding, MegaStir tools consistently produce top-quality, high-strength welds in a single pass. Our tools come in a wide variety of size, hardness and tip materials, so you can get . This technology plays an increasingly important role in the industrial manufacturing for various sectors such as: aerospace, railway, automotive, shipbuilding, energy, defense. This is Hitachi High Technologies Industrial Solutions. FSW involves the use of special shaped rotating tools to join two pieces of plate material together.

Unlike arc welding, the more standard way to fuse metal plates, a friction stir just needs a good rubbing—and a few thousand pounds of pressure—to stick together. The process employs a pin tool with a low rotational speed and applied pressure that “mechanically stirs” two parent materials together to produce a uniform weld. Concurrent Technologies Corporation is one of the leading friction stir welding companies to develop friction stir welding processes and friction stir welding tools for various structures. Suitable for: The course is suitable for anyone with an interest or involvement in friction stir welding , but is especially relevant to those who will be operating friction stir welding equipment or specifying friction stir welding as a fabrication technology.

No prior experience of FSW is necessary for this course but some . J Toxicol Environ Health A. Emission of nanoparticles during friction stir welding (FSW) of aluminium alloys.
