What are the main applications of FSW in navy industry?

Friction stir welding is applied to the manufacture of large aluminum floors for naval structures. The FSW process also allows the production of high-strength extruded aluminum decks and bulkheads, alloys that were previously considered un-weldable.
Finally, FSW has become an excellent alternative to riveting and bolting which are prone to corrosion.
FSW (Friction Stir Welding) is a process that allows continuous, tight and faster automated welding. This breakthrough technology is becoming more and more popular in the shipbuilding industry.
