Powerstir FSW for aerospace and avionics

Research & Development activities at our UK Headquarters have taken the capabilities of Powerstir friction stir welding machines to new heights, to include the jointing of exotic steel and titanium alloys for aerospace applications.

We have successfully welded both aerospace-grade steel alloy and aerospace-grade titanium in thicknesses of 3mm and 8mm, using our proprietary PTG fixed pin tooling.

Excellent results have also been achieved with exotic aluminium alloys from 2mm – 35mm in a range of challenging configurations.
