FSW APPLICATIONS

State-of-the-art joining process for a variety of applications

FSW machines from Stirtec are employed by leading OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and their suppliers for high-volume production in the automotive industry. Specifically designed for mass production in automotive manufacturing, Stirtec's FSW machines are utilized by prominent OEMs and their suppliers. They are distinguished by sophisticated force-displacement measurement and control systems, allowing them to be operated fully automatically with high reliability. 

In the automotive industry, friction stir welding is often utilized for lap joints, as such connections compensate for component tolerances and have proven effective in joint geometry during resistance spot welding. 

Semi-finished products for special forming processes such as hydroforming, spin forming, flow forming, or quenching and tempering are frequently manufactured using friction stir welding. This is because the seams and heat-affected zones in aluminum alloys exhibit unusually high strength. In the case of tailor-welded tubes, longitudinal seams are first created on tapered tubes using FSW, and these are then welded as a tube-to-tube connection with cylindrical tubes before being shaped to the desired form through internal high-pressure forming.
