  • Lower cost
  • High degree of customization
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Spot weld thin aluminum sheets
  • No filler material
  • Deformations less likely
  • Aesthetically appealing

Applications

Aluminum is corrosion resistant, strong, and has a low mass. Friction stir welding contributes to an improvement in fuel economy by reducing body weight substantially. To make a door frame, hoods, and other auto parts, sheets of metal are welded together, then cut into appropriate sizes, and finally stamped into the final shape.

Using friction stir welding allows a high degree of customization. For example, a thicker gauge metal can be used on one side of a car where extra strength is needed. That part can be joined to a thinner gauge metal on the side of the car where extra strength isn’t needed. The elimination of gaskets not only eliminates leaks it allows for a lower cost part.
