This webinar will demonstrate Friction Stir Welding (FSW) as an alternative to other welding and mechanical joining methods of extruded aluminum profiles. Until recently, FSW has been mostly used in aerospace structures. However, as the FSW technology became more widely known end use applications have grown. Today, one can fine FSW welded structures in many different end use applications which include but are not limited to: super capacitor housings, LED lighting fixtures, thermal management devices, as well as large structures used in transportation and commercial construction.
The FSW process offers many different advantages which vary depending on the end use application. At a high level, FWS structures offer a reduced heat affected zone, better thermal performance, and consistent performance characteristics over MIG or TIG welded structures.
