Stroboscopic imaging of laser optics in a parallel kinematic system

The IWS offers a broad spectrum of modern joining technologies to address the joining of hard-to-weld materials. A particular focus is on materials that cannot be joined using melting based welding processes. Therefore specific joining methods are utilized at Fraunhofer IWS:

  • friction stir welding
  • electromagnetic pulse welding

Our service offer includes:

  • consulting (for example when selecting the most appropriate joining technology)
  • numerical simulation to support process design and development
  • feasibility and concept studies
  • field testing support
  • commercialization support
  • materials characterization
