Friction Stir Welding

FSW (Friction Stir Welding) is an innovative low-temperature welding process. Due to rotation and pressure of a tool frictional heat is produced and the parts soften plastically in the area of the rotating tool without reaching the melting point thereby joining the parts.

EURO‑COMPOSITES® uses a very modern double-head welding unit which is especially suited for the joining of extruded profiles: Maximum dimension for parts are 3000 x 13540 mm (further dimensions on request).

Maximum dimension for single extruded profile are 500 x 3000 mm resp. 3000 x 13540 mm with repositioning. Maximum distance between upper and lower welding tool is 420 mm. Maximum welding line thickness (full material, both heads welding simultaneously) is 10 mm (in AA5xxx and AA2xxx), respectively 18 mm (in AA6xxx).

Only one thing has always remained unchanged: Our aim for the quality of our products and services.
