These special welding systems can be used to manufacture products such as valve tappets, hydraulic components, complete vehicle axles and special components used to manufacture batteries.
"KUKA has been a leading supplier of Magnetarc and Friction Welding products and systems for years," explains Dr. Till Reuter, CEO of KUKA AG.  "This demonstrates our advanced technological systems building expertise."

About Magnetarc Welding 

Magnetarc Welding was developed by KUKA Systems and is a pressure welding process that relies on a magnetically driven arc under shielding gas.
Profiles with walls between 0.7 and 10 mm thick can be joined using this process. Suitable materials are electrically conductive and fusible, such as carbon steel and low-alloy steels, free-cutting steels, cast steel and malleable cast iron. This process is also ideal for joining combinations of these materials.

About Friction Welding

Friction Welding is distinguished by its speed, reliability and low cost. More than anything else, this process can be used to join more materials and combinations of materials than any other welding process. Other technical advantages that make friction welding a favorite include: uncompromising weldability of high-tech materials, maximum joining quality and fast cycle times.
