The Friction Stir Welding Process

The Friction Stir Welding Process

When we talk about friction stir welding, we are referring to a method of welding that involves the heating of metal so it can be effectively welded. This process also involves a rotating tool that will push the heated material together. One of the great advantages of using friction stir welding is that the metal you use will never melt. This will produce great results because it gives you the ability to attach different metals at different angles at a higher efficiency rate.

If you wanted a certain part that had intricate geometric shapes in it and you did not want tool marks or welds, you would want that part to be created through hydroforming. You do all your research and decide on the metal and thickness for the shape and we make a prototype for you. Unfortunately, even though the shape is perfect, you decide a different metal and thickness will be better. What happens next?

The Metal Stamping Process

The Metal Stamping Process

When it comes to metal stamping, the process is not a new process. It’s history can be dated all the way back to the 1800s, and this was during the type when bicycle parts were being mass-produced. However, the metal stamping systems and other resources that were being used were not as advanced as they are today. The metal stamping systems during that time were still able to produce a variety of effective and efficient parts and components.
