Webinars on Advanced Welding Solutions
First-class webinar special – tailored to your needs, conducted by experts, free of charge.
Webinars on special joining processes for e-mobility and the automotive industry
KUKA is one of the world market leaders in rotational friction welding with over 1300 installations in 44 countries under the KUKA and Thompson brands and theworld market leader in magnetarc weldingwith over 200 installations in over 19 countries. With the industrialized entry into robot-based friction stir welding in 2014, KUKA is now also one of the world market leaders in this welding process, which has great future potential.
We offer a broad portfolio of standardised and customised machines and can produce a wide variety of parts for you in subcontract manufacturing according to worldwide standards.
Learn more about the many possibilities and advantages of KUKA Advanced Welding Solutions in this webinar special.
Rotational friction welding - Basics
Rotational Friction Welding - a pressure welding technique with highest bonding quality and vast possibilities in material combinations for countless applications
New innovative process variant to extend the welding suitability without pores and risk of cracking and control the mechanical-technological properties in wide ranges with considerable simplification of parameter development.
Learn from our experts, who can draw on over 50 years of knowledge, how KUKA can solve your future welding tasks even better and more economically.
Joining process friction welding
The pressure welding process of friction welding allows both identical and different materials such as aluminium and steel (lightweight construction), or aluminium and copper (e-mobility) to be joined.
Friction stir welding is the optimal joining process for non-ferrous metals with a low melting temperature and for mixed-metal combinations. With the rapid demand in the field of e-mobility for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, this process is also finding increasing application.
You can join for example:
Battery housing, die cast components, cooling systems
Power electronics housing, housing for cell phones or control panels
Joining process magnetarc welding
Magnetarc welding is a pressure welding process with an arc that is moved magnetically under shielding gas. This technology can be used to join hollow sections with wall thicknesses of up to 10 millimeters.
This is suitable for:
Prop shafts, rear axles
Rotor shafts, pressure vessel
