Friction Stir Welding Solutions for the Truck Trailer Industry

HFW Solutions has worked with Truck Trailer industry companies to develop and create new and innovative parts and solutions that are stronger, lighter, resistant to higher temperatures, and more reliable. We are also able to guarantee our customers an improved flatness and lower residual stress in our truck trailer products. We understand the complexities of planning for the inevitable change within the Truck Trailer industry and the critical need for solutions that can adapt over time.


Making a Difference in Truck Trailer Manufacturing

Our extensive experience in Truck Trailer friction stir welding solutions is evident in the enormous variety of parts our machines produce. Friction stir welding plays an enormous role in Truck Trailer industry products. Friction stir welding machines produce reliable and consistent results in custom sheet and plate products. Improving aesthetics, providing strength, delivering cost savings – these are just a few of the many benefits friction stir welding produces.


Why Friction Stir Welding is Vital for Truck Trailer Applications

Friction Stir Welding not only adds new, improved weld strength and durability to truck trailer products but can significantly improve the product’s aesthetic quality while eliminating material and processing steps associated with arc based methods of welding. Friction stir welding tooling and techniques allow for the welding of large panels at one time, while generating minimal heat and few external areas to “clean up”. At HFW, after we friction stir weld the parts, we are able to machine our products into their final shapes. We also make many of our truck trailer products from extrusions.

We’re continually improving efficiency and strength with versatile and unique materials. When we make a new weld, we push the boundaries of where and how our machines can operate. This is just another example of the HFW way of thinking.
