What types of aluminium can be welded by FSW?

FSW can be used to weld all aluminium alloys, including those that are not weldable with conventional processes.
With this process, it is now possible to join high-strength aluminium alloys such as the 2000, 6000 and 7000 series.
FSW is also popular for welding 1xxx, 2xxx, 3xxx, 5xxx, 6xxx and some 7xxx types of standard aluminium.
The thickness range is from 1 mm thin sheet to parts up to 10 mm, weldable in one pass. Our FSW tools can weld up to 20 mm in a double pass.
