Primary Technologies of Friction Welding

 RFSSW - Refill Friction Spot Welding

     Benefits Include:

  • Aluminum (1000 – 7000 series), Magnesium, Non-Ferrous and Dissimilar combinations
  • Process monitoring
  • Flexible sheet thickness combination in one operation
  • Result is as solid as original material
  • High energy efficiency
  • No additional or consumable materials required

 

 FSW - Direct Drive Friction Spin Welding

     Benefits Include:

  • Consistent weld duplication
  • Multiple material welding
  • Significantly faster weld times
  • Environmentally clean and safe
  • Material loss is minimal
  • Process monitoring of weld parameters for statistical process control
