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.

You can produce high quality components such as:

  • Valves, drive shafts, axles, motor shafts
  • Turbochargers, piston rods, drill pipes, battery contacts

Joining process friction stir welding

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
