Unmatched Industry Technology
Aluminum alloys are at their best quality before welding; the heat from welding changes their molecular structure and weakens them. The heat also unavoidably deforms them. Badger Forms® has almost completely replaced hot welding with friction stir welding. Friction stir welding is the same type of welding used on spacecraft.
"Because less energy is used, the welding process inflicts less residual stress on joints than standard ‘fusion welding’ – molten welds will pull on surrounding metal as they solidify. The result is that....friction stir welds will suffer less distortion, ending up with material performance comparable to unwelded metal." European Space Agency
