Friction Stir Welding Support

Friction Stir Welding Support

Friction Stir Welding

  • Geocent performs setup procedures on Robotic FSW machines before each FSW weld
  • Geocent performs FSW welding using Conventional and Self Reacting techniques
  • Geocent performs machining and fabrication as required to make unique tooling or test panels as needed

Friction Pull Plug Welding

  • Geocent evaluates the composition of all raw material used to produce Friction Pull Plugs
  • Geocent writes Friction Pull Plug procedures
  • Geocent performs Friction Pull Plug welding
  • Geocent performs machining and fabrication as required to make unique tooling or test panels as needed

Laser Tracking Alignment

  • Geocent utilizes the Laser Tracking Alignment System to assure material and parts are aligned according to engineering drawings before assembly

Tooling and Material Requirements Integration

  • Geocent coordinates engineering drawing changes for Friction Stir Weld (FSW) Pin Tools, Aluminum Test Panels and Friction Pull Plugs
  • Geocent serves as the liaison between Welding Development/Engineering, Procurement, and Material Management teams to assure the availability of  FSW tooling and material to support the development schedule
  • Geocent coordinates transfers of FSW tooling, material and welded test panels  to/from suppliers and NASA locations
