One process that may not be particularly well known is Friction Stir Welding (FSW), a reliable, efficient, and sustainable manufacturing technology for creating pressure-tight and media-tight connections between two materials.
FSW is fundamentally suitable for applications involving joining aluminum or unrelated materials.
The target workpieces for FSW currently include, in particular, battery trays and inverter housings as well as all electronic components that require heat dissipation alongside high requirements for leak-tightness.
Friction stir welding technology also enables car manufacturers to relocate electrical modules to the wet areas of vehicles.
"The CHIRON Group boasts comprehensive expertise and practical user experience for machining these target workpieces," a spokesman said. "By combining FSW and machining, the CHIRON Group is developing a forward-thinking innovation to provide benefits for users similar to those offered by other process combinations: Reduced space requirements, shorter cycle times and higher quality and productivity."
