Friction-Stir Welding Machine FOOKE FSW 35

FOOKE FSW 35 is a machine tool system for the hybrid machining of large aluminium alloy extrusion profiles. It is specifically designed for friction stir welding, high speed cutting and brushing of profiles used in the railway, aviation and shipbuilding industries.
The high process forces generated during friction stir welding require a highly rigid machine structure. That’s the reason why the Friction-Stir Welding Machine FSW 35 is designed for very high loads with minimal deflections. Further, this 5-axis machine is ideal for 3D welded seams.
A special feature of this machine type is its ability to be retrofitted on existing ENDURA® 1000 installations.
