The Latest in Aluminum Joining Techniques

Sometimes described as more of a forging process than actual welding – Friction Stir Welding is a solid- state joining technique used to join metals not easily fused with traditional welding. Ideal for metals such as aluminum, copper and other metal alloys, FSW is commonly used in the aerospace, rail, automotive, shipbuilding, transportation and marine industries.

Friction stir welding makes possible very high-quality welds with minimal distortion. It is also a process that can be easily automated, making it an ideal solution for industrial use.
