Tooling is essential
Regardless of the application: Besides the system technology, tooling is critical for the welding process and therefore the success of FSW. The wear-resistant and robust FSW tools are developed exclusively by Grenzebach’s experts according to specific requirements . With a holistic approach, nothing is left to chance. Regarding the tool, one has to differentiate between the one-piece (conventional) and the multi-part tools (DynaSTIR) in friction stir welding, both of which are featured in our portfolio!
Process development for the specific customer application as well as provision of customized tools is part of our holistic approach.
- Welding system, process parameters and welding tool are optimally matched which creates the best possible connection quality.
- We assign highest priority to a close cooperation with the customer during the design of the joining concept.
- Already during the design phase of components, Grenzebach supports the FSW-compliant design of the module.
- Test and prototype welding as well as contract manufacturing orders are possible on the proprietary FSW systems of Grenzebach.
