Friction Stir Welding Laboratory

Friction Stir Welding Laboratory
Innerpage Title Banner
This laboratory is an extension of the friction resources at the company headquarters in Cambridge. The laboratory houses a unique range of equipment focusing on applying friction stir welding to join and process high temperature materials, thick section and three-dimensional components.

The key industry benefit from this laboratory is the ability to assess, both technically and commercially, the viability of applying friction stir welding to components beyond the range of materials, geometry and thicknesses currently used in industry.
