Fooke FSW Medium

Friction stir welding machine

Hybrid machining of large-scale workpieces.

The FOOKE FSW Medium series offers machine tools for the hybrid processing of large-scale workpieces of low-melting metals, especially manufactured for friction stir welding of profiles, used in the rail vehicle, aerospace, shipbuilding and automotive industries.

High process forces generated during friction stir welding require a highly rigid machine structure. This is why the machines in the FOOKE FSW Medium series are designed for very high loads and at high stiffness levels. They are preferably used for joining thick sheets and profiles with 2D contours.
