  9. Enhanced Tooling for Friction Stir Technologies

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N18AT026

    Tool materials development has been the major limit for the application of friction stir technologies/welding (FSW) on hard alloys such as steels and titanium alloys over the past decade. During friction stir welding on steels, temperatures can exceed 1000C, so the tool material needs to be strong enough to sustain wearing and deformation at elevated temperatures for long times. There are two majo ...
