Production Machine (PM)
v The PM1 from Bond Technologies, Inc. is a compact 3-axis CNC machine for Friction Stir Welding in a production environment. Despite its small size, the PM1 is a full-featured FSW machine with force and position control capabilities.
v Also available is a 5-Axis version of the PM1. This version has the additional ability of complex contour welding through the use of servo actuated ±5° tilts about both the X & Y-Axes.
v Applications include:
• Electronic Enclosures
• Flat Panels
• Heat Exchangers
• Drive Shafts
v PM Series basic configuration.
• X-Axis –Fixed table, moving C-frame ball screw driven, servo actuated, on precision ground rails.
• Y-Axis – Trans versing spindle carriage, ball screw driven, servo actuated, on precision ground rails.
• Z-Axis – Forging bridge, ball screw driven, servo actuated on precision ground rails.
• Tilt (A/B-Axis optional) – spindle rotation about X & Y-Axes, servo actuated, on precision pivoting mechanism.
