What kind of welder do I need to weld aluminum?

The qualification of the welding operator depends on the technology chosen to weld aluminium.
It is possible to weld certain types of aluminium alloys with traditional welding processes such as TIG or MIG. These techniques require the welder to have a welder’s qualification (QS) issued by an official certification body.
Friction stir welding is used on an existing machine tool. The machinist or operator trained on your machine can easily learn to weld aluminium with FSW. Friction stir welding does not require a welder’s qualification.
Striweld supports you throughout the entire FSW implementation cycle. We train your technicians in the use of our FSW tools. Several webinars FSW courses are already available to train you in friction stir welding of aluminium.
