How to manage the force with the FSW head during FSW operations?

A constant force of the FSW tool on the parts to be joined is essential to guarantee a quality weld.
For this reason, Stirweld has integrated a force sensor into its FSW welding head. This feature monitors the pressure exerted during the friction stir welding process. The sensor records the data and alerts the operator to significant changes in the force exerted.
The Stirweld FSW head is universal. It allows a force transducer to be integrated into any machine tool to turn your MOCN into an efficient FSW welding machine.
