Standards for friction stir welding joints

To ensure that FSW joints fulfill the same inspection and quality standards on a global level, ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standardized the process in 2011 (DIN EN ISO 25239, part 1-5).

The owner and CEO of RSS Schilling GmbH, Christoph Schilling, contributed significantly to this standard. Nowadays, we use this standard as our guide when completing welding work.

The standard refers to applications for aluminum alloy welding workpieces, the most common application, and includes:

Part 1: Vocabulary

Part 2: Design of weld joints

Part 3: Qualification of welding operators

Part 4: Specification and qualification of welding procedures

Part 5: Quality and inspection requirements
