Yesterday's Pioneer, Today's Leader.
Rhenium Alloys introduces its DuraStir Line of Friction Stir Welding Tools for solid-state joining.
Rhenium Alloys, Inc., a world leader in manufacturing of refractory metals, is proud to introduce the DuraStir Line of Friction Stir Welding Tools. Since 1966 Rhenium Alloys, located near Cleveland, Ohio, has been synonymous with high temperature refractory metals innovation. Our DuraStir Tools are proudly MADE IN USA.
Friction Stir Welding, an innovative welding process where the metal is not melted, joins two surfaces using mechanical pressure applied by a third body tool. A solid-state joining process, FSW creates superior quality, high-strength joints with very low distortion. With excellent mechanical properties, it allows the joining of dissimilar alloys, very large panel lengths and widths, practically defect-free bonding, and is environmentally friendly. FSW avoids many of the metal cooling problems, such as porosity, solute redistribution, solidification cracking and liquation cracking, that are often associated with traditional fusion welding methods.
The Rhenium Alloys DuraStir Line incorporates the latest state of the art Friction Stir Welding (FSW) tool materials and technology. These proprietary tools are used to Friction Stir Weld hard metals such as steel, titanium and nickel based alloys. Heavy manufacturers in the oil and gas, nuclear, and military equipment industries benefit from this exciting new welding material and design innovation. Rhenium Alloys DuraStir tools have extensive applications in the aerospace and defense industries for the welding of Titanium.
