How To Weld Without Flames – Friction Stir Welding Automation!


To develop technology is only halfway to success. CRIQ – Innovation Partner form Quebec, develop a new robot that uses this new technology. This robot is called FANUC M-900i. FSW technology requires huge amount of down force to plunge on start and maintain tool orientation.


FANUC robot is best solution for precise welding task: it`s automatic, servo-controlled speed, accurate and heavy payload guarantees optimal down force for performing high accuracy and high quality welding works. The principle of running is quite simple. FSW provides rotation under pressure, which increases friction – as a result, welding zone is formed.
