Friction Stir Welding is an innovative solid-state joining technology. This technology plays an increasingly important role in the industrial manufacturing for various sectors such as: aerospace, railway, automotive, shipbuilding, energy, defense...
Friction Stir Welding FSW provides the main advantages in industrial manufacturing:
TRA-C industrie is the European Leader for the FSW design, manufacturing and assembly equipment. We extend our expertise all over Europe with these skills in the FSW technology.
The FSW technology limits defects linked to long manufacturing cycles and high labour costs.
As the 1st French company to have developed FSW for serial production, our R&D focuses on industrial applications of FSW through design and prototype testing.
Our researcher team is qualified in researching and exploring the best solutions for our customers when applying Friction Stir Welding in both Homogenous welding with multiple materials: Aluminum, Steel, Copper, Titanium, etc. and Heterogeneous welding in various conditions like Al/Al (2XXX/7XXX, 7XXX/6XXX…), Al/Steel, Al/Cu, Al/Mg.
We design, develop and build custom-made machines alongside specific tools to add in values. At the moment, TRA-C industrie is capable of providing different types of Friction Stir Welding (FSW) machines with position and force control, centralized and automatic lubrication along with other specific features :
For customers looking for sub-contracting solutions using FSW technology and taking best advantages of this innovative trend, TRA-C industries have the capacity to provide the services with the best quality. We can support customers with the whole manufacturing cycle, using FSW techniques :
