Using Friction Stir Welding Technology with American Hydroformers

Using Friction Stir Welding Technology with American Hydroformers

Friction stir welding is an innovative and unique method of joining metals by using frictional heat combined with a controlled forging pressure, producing full penetrated welded joints with high integrity that are defect free. Friction stir welding is most efficient on cylindrical components, flat plates as well as on parts of uneven thickness.
