Is your riveting process limiting your production capacity and using up too much floor space and cycle time? Talk to us for an effective alternative! Cosmetic welds are as strong and durable as riveted construction. Advantages include floor-space and manufacturing cycle time savings, superior leak-tightness, corrosion resistance, and weight savings. Ask us for a sample weld!

Drilling and riveting thick aluminum can be expensive and warranty-intensive. We can help with an innovative weld solution! Cosmetic welds with proven fatigue life help reduce weight, manufacturing cycle time, and costs. Welds are as strong as the riveted construction to be replaced.
Hybrid Automotive Fuse/Cable-Connector Welds
Stranded Wire Cable-connector welds up to 70 mm² of copper cross-sectional area are possible with this method. The welds are unusually strong in the shear and peel test modes. Innovative Weld Solution advantages include the lack of need to use any brazing/soldering fluxes. All tests specified by Industry specifications on these joints can be passed. Very short weld times result in low manufacturing costs. The weld process can be manual, semi-automatic with quick change-over of cable sizes and tooling.
A unique combination of large volume manufacturing, metallurgy and welding skills have enabled us to break through present paradigms in the manufacturing of light-weight structures and welded large diameter copper/aluminum cables. Our partner company, Milco Manufacturing Inc. helps us with equipment build and servicing.
IWSL’s FMRW™ Weld technology enables generation of steep temperature gradients in conducting metals and opens up new welding paradigms. Cosmetic and durable aluminum alloy structures can be manufactured at low cost.
Portable Seam Welding
FMRW™ seam welding technology enables generation of corrosion resistant, high quality seam welds in large aluminum structures. Water quenching of surfaces welded eliminates problems such as “Sensitization Corrosion”. Strong customer interest can enable validation/commercialization.
How close to the edge of aluminum alloys can I weld? Resistance spot welding close to aluminum alloy sheet edges within 10mm is not considered possible. With IWSL’s patented technology, welds as close as 2.5mm to the edge can be achieved cosmetically without compromising weld strength.read more
