RIFTEC - We weld aluminium
We have been welding aluminium for more than 20 years. And not only with friction stir welding (FSW), but of course also with TIG welding and MIG welding. Would you like to have your component welded by us? In close cooperation with you our project managers will find the most suitable welding process for your component.
TIG welding: The allrounder
MIG welding: The fast one
Do you need complex components with diverse requirements?
No problem! We often combine different welding processes for one component. One example: we weld longitudinal seams with friction stir welding, fillet welds with TIG and fill in remaining end holes with TIG. There are (almost) no limits to the imagination. Talk to us, we will advise you.
Even when time is of the essence, you have RIFTEC at your side as a contract welder! As an independent service provider, we can even do irregular series or production start-ups for you at short notice.
You can also call on us if you experience a sudden increase in capacity or as assurance against production failures.
Your assembly standards are challenging? RIFTEC is the right place for you!
What we can do with friction stir welding:
Your components may consist of almost any aluminum alloy, but also other light and non-ferrous metals such as magnesium or copper. Mixed connections of aluminum and copper or aluminum and magnesium can also be welded. We even combine stainless steel with aluminum if both materials and the geometry go well together.
Concerning the component size, the machine's workspace is usually the limiting factor. We weld plate sizes of up to 8 m x 3.5 m. We have a maximum component height of around 900 mm in the multi-dimensional area. Possible welding depths for friction stir welding at RIFTEC are between 0.5 and 30 mm. Double-sided welding up to 60 mm weld depth.
These are of course all guide values, depending on the alloy used and the component geometry. Please contact us if you need more information.
Benefit for the environment and the team
At RIFTEC, we have been using only green electricity for years and keep our carbon footprint as low as possible in all welding processes. Friction stir welding also works without inert gas and filler materials, making it particularly employee-friendly.
Aluminium welding in perfection.
