Most FSW machines are controlled using the latest of PLC technology and high accuracy drives. This allows the machine’s axes position and speed to be controlled delicately and precise.
The Z-axis control works in either on position or on set force control mode. The menu driven 15” touch-screen HMI interface is designed specifically for FSW. It is the interface for setting up the process parameters, the welding path as well as the most common machine parameters.
It also provides monitoring capabilities of the process parameters, alarms and system status.
