Aluminium balls are particularly lightweight metal balls. Due to their properties, they are ideal for a number of applications: for safety devices in automotive engineering, for example.
Stud welding is a preferred connection technique for connecting different aluminium components. Aluminium balls are used in the technique to create permanent connections.
The many benefits of aluminium balls include impact resistance, simple processing and resistance to temperature changes. This makes aluminium balls suitable for a range of applications:
precision bearings and miniature bearings, ball bearing discs, axial bearings, thermostats or valves for regulating liquids or aggressive media. Further, Al balls are used as retention screws or in the sports and games industry: as munition for slingshots or Softair weapons, for example.
