R-SWG (Friction stir spot welding gun)
The Friction Stir Spot Welding Gun R-SWG is a light-weight but powerful machine, which can be mounted on a robot or integrated into a manufacturing center. Combining the latest FSSW-technology with a high-tech force measuring system, the R-SWG offers new possibilites in the field of spot welding. Even different materials like aluminium and steel can be welded together.
Since there is no permanent material pickup on the tool (no alloying), an uninterrupted process becomes feasible. Further, no chemical or mechanical pre-cleaning is necessariy, which reduces the costs of the process drastically.
