FSW-660M/690 Aluminium Formwork Friction Stir Welding Machine
A new generation aluminum profile friction stir welding machine launched successfully by CBS Industry CO LTD. The aluminium formwork friction stir welding machine adopts the latest friction stir welding technology, specially designed for aluminium formwork L sections center jointing.
The machine has two models, FSW-660M for max. width 600mm panel and max length 6000mm welding. FSW-690 for max. width 900mm and length upto 6000mm. The stiffeners welding function also optional according to requirement.

Friction stir welding (FSW) is a solid-state joining process that uses a non-consumable tool to join two facing workpieces without melting the workpiece material. Heat is generated by friction between the rotating tool and the workpiece material, which leads to a softened region near the FSW tool. While the tool is traversed along the joint line, it mechanically intermixes the two pieces of metal, and forges the hot and softened metal by the mechanical pressure, which is applied by the tool, much like joining clay, or dough. It is primarily used on wrought or extruded aluminium and particularly for structures which need very high weld strength. FSW is capable of joining aluminium alloys, copper alloys, titanium alloys, mild steel, stainless steel and magnesium alloys. More recently, it was successfully used in welding of polymers. In addition, joining of dissimilar metals, such as aluminium to magnesium alloys, has been recently achieved by FSW. Application of FSW can be found in modern shipbuilding, trains, and aerospace applications.
