Highlights of the FOOKE FSW 10

Machine design

The structural components of a FOOKE FSW 10 are manufactured as extremely rigid, stress-relieved welded steel construction. The linear axes, fitted with hardened and ground linear guide elements, are driven by pinion-rack (X-axis) or recirculating ball screw (Y- and Z-axis).

Control

The FOOKE FSW control system enables simple and intuitive operation of the system. The user interface is designed to be comprehensible, presents all important information clearly and ensures optimum control of the welding process.

All relevant data, e.g.

- Welding power,
- RPM,
- Welding speed,
- Traverse paths,
- etc.,

can be easily set up on the input field.

FOOKE FSW force sensor system

The FOOKE FSW force sensor system consists i.a., of a sensor system integrated into the FSW spindle, which measures the axial force generated in the welding process. This ensures a constant force within certain limits to guarantee a consistent, optimum quality of the weld seam at all times.

 

FOOKE FSW 20

Friction stir welding machine for joining metal sheets

The FOOKE FSW 20 sheet joining machine is a 2-axis machine tool for welding flat aluminum sheets. It is designed for welding sheets with a width of up to 3,800 mm.

Machine design

The structural components of a FOOKE FSW 20 are manufactured as an extremely rigid, stress-relieved welded steel construction. The linear axes, which are equipped with hardened and ground linear guide elements, are driven by recirculating ball screws. The plates to be welded are fixed by a hydraulic clamping system specially developed for this purpose.

Control

The FOOKE FSW control system enables a simple and intuitive operation. The user interface is user friendly, clearly displaying all important information and ensuring optimum control of the welding process.

All relevant data e.g.

- welding force,
- speed,
- welding speed,
- traverse paths,
- etc.,

can be easily entered into the system.
