Anniversary at KUKA: 50 years of friction welding

“Friction welding – a process with a future” – KUKA already advertised with this slogan back in 1966 and has long since been proven right. Fast, safe and economical: characteristics that distinguish this process and have made it indispensable down to the present day. In particular, the combination of different materials is a major argument for this technology. KUKA was very quick to recognize the advantages of friction welding and has continued to develop the process over the years. Today, the Augsburg-based company can look back on a 50-year success story.
