SBB now offers Friction Stir Welding (FSW)

This new technology allows us to meet a wide set of high-quality welding needs for various uses :

  • Extrusion welding
  • Welding of molded parts
  • Welding of parts up to 12mm thick, of materials non-weldable by fusion

 

Our company has chosen to invest in this new equipment because it not only has excellent automation and productivity potential, but also holds many advantages for its customers :

  • Fast process in one pass
  • Improved reliability and repeatability
  • High leakproofness of the weld
  • Aesthetic outcome

This technology makes it possible to weld aluminum casting or dissimilar metals, such as aluminum & copper or aluminum & steel, while significantly reducing the risk of distortion.

In addition, this method provides employees with a safer work environment; free from the radiation and toxic fumes that usually accompany GMAW welding. Therefore, production can be described as « clean ».

 

Our Production and Engineering Departments are available to discuss your projects that require innovative welding with a high-performance result.
