Truck & Trailer for Aluminum Manufacturing
At Bayou Manufacturing, another significant application for Friction Stir Welding is over-the-road trailer decking.
This trailer decking in the photo consists of extrusions in both the transverse and longitudinal direction of the deck. All of the extrusions are welded with Friction Stir Welding. The main Friction Stir Welded sub-assemblies are then arc welded to produce the final assembly. Eighty percent of this Friction Stir Welding is performed robotically.
