C-SWG (Friction stir spot welding console)

The powerful Friction Stir Spot Welding Console C-SWG is a powerful unit, which is fully programmable via a CNC tool. Using state-of-the-art FSSW technology combined with a high-tech force measurement system, this console opens up new opportunities for friction stir spot welding (FSSW) of sheet metal. Even different materials such as aluminum and steel can be joined with this machine.

No aluminum build-up (alloying) is formed on the tool, which makes uninterrupted use possible. The chemical or mechanical pre-cleaning can be omitted which brings a significant cost reduction.
