Friction welding uses friction generated heat to bond materials together. As a sub-form of pressure welding, it was established more than 50 years ago as an industrial joining process and developed further and further through innovations such as short-term welding or positioned friction welding. With the friction welding machine RS12 from the world market leader KUKA Industries, a diverse range of components from different industries can be produced. These include for example the automotive, construction, general engineering, oil & gas, aerospace, marine and electrical industries. New technology trends such as e-mobility and hybrid lightweight design place high demands on the mastery of the welding process, which makes it possible to combine different material combinations cost-effectively and industrially. Typical workpieces for friction welding, even of different material pairings, are, for example, drive rollers, twin idler wheels for lorries, pinion shafts, drive shafts, worm shafts, drive shafts, electric motor or turbine shafts. The friction welding machine RS12 from KUKA scores not only in the fields of precision, dynamics and process control, but also by the high cost-saving potential for your production. Regardless of which markets or customers you serve, what tasks you are facing - with the friction welding machine KUKA RS12 you have the guarantee for the highest quality in the manufacture of safety-relevant components and the possibility of sophisticated material combinations (for example aluminum-copper) welding.
