The space industry saw the potential of FSW (Friction Stir Welding) at an early stage. The maturity of the technique has lead to a world-wide acceptance for production, where FSW is a qualified and certified process. 

Rocket Fuel Tanks
FSW is now widely adopted and used for manufacturing rocket fuel tanks.

  • Production time  for a typical tank has also been dramatically reduced and a number of cost savings have been achieved.
