About Friction Stir Welding

We can offer customers aluminium panels that are up to 18 meters long and 3.5 meters wide!

Some advantages of friction stir welding:
• A process that results in completely pore-free, tight joints with high strength
• Minimum heat influence on the material, with small heat stress only in the material and flat surfaces
• Good mechanical properties, with few, easily controlled variables, allowing tight tolerances

The FSW method provides high-strength joints without inclusions of impurities. Tensile tests show that the welded joints are almost completely free from stress. Det Norske Veritas has conducted bending and X-ray tests of the joints and approved the process for complex solutions in marine applications.
