Friction Stir Welding Technology (FSW)
Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is utilized for cast wheel production. This process allows for complex materials (dissimilar metals) to blend together becoming one single unit. FSW allows for the thermal effect of the joint to be small, minimizing deformation and maintaining mechanical properties of the base materials. Compared to MIG welding FSW eliminates pinholes, reducing porosity and air leakage. Additional advantages are increased tool life because fillers or gas sealants are not required. There is no need for pre-machining or washing process, providing a cost advantage.
