Friction Stir Welding

Freedom of design for next-generation products

Friction stir welding makes the casting process easier and smoother.

By closing the casting with this one-minute procedure, you can reduce the number of components and reduce the time and effort required for assembly.

Strong seams for greater durability

FSW is a method that joins two pieces of metal together at a temperature lower than typical using a combination of pressure and mechanical manipulation.

This creates a very strong seam between the pieces, effectively making them a single piece with great durability.

Design new generation products

With friction stir welding, the next-generation products can be designed with greater freedom.

It’s a more secure alternative to screw-on seal, making the manufacturing faster and the resulting product stronger.
