Tungsten-rhenium friction stir head for friction stir welding
Friction stir welding is an innovative welding process in which the metal does not melt and connects the two surfaces using a third body tool applied by mechanical pressure. Friction stir welding is a solid state joining process with high-quality, high-strength, and low-deformation joints. It has excellent mechanical properties, can be connected to different alloys, very large panel length and width, almost no defect combination, and is environmentally friendly. Friction stir welding avoids metal cooling problems such as pores, solute redistribution, solidification cracks and liquefaction cracks that are common in traditional fusion welding methods.
The latest friction stir welding tools are used for friction stir welding of hard metals such as steel, titanium and nickel-based alloys. Heavy manufacturers in the oil and gas, nuclear energy, and military equipment industries benefit from this exciting new welding material and design innovation. It has a wide range of applications in the aerospace and defense industries for the welding of titanium.
Stirring tools can be customized to suit your specific technical challenges.
