Is your FSW head regulated by force?

Yes, the Stirweld welding head is force controlled.
The pressure exerted on the workpiece must be constant in order to guarantee quality FSW welds. It is therefore essential to know and control the force to be applied during the FSW welding operation. This setting allows the tool to be placed on the workpieces to be welded and to ensure good compactness in order to avoid porosities. This is why we have equipped all our FSW equipment with force sensors.
