What are the challenges of FSW 3D welding?

A 6-axis robot with an articulated arm equipped with an FSW spindle can weld in 3 dimensions.
This equipment offers a wide range of movement allowing welding horizontally, vertically, on the ceiling… This multidirectional welding capability makes 3D welding of large and complex parts possible.
Robotic friction stir welding is an efficient and cost-effective joining solution for complex 3D geometries. The process is also popular for assembly-line operations, particularly in the automotive industry.
