Often our clients come to us because their own clients are asking for FSW to be used on their parts or products. Bond Technologies will help with potential part design or material changes that may be needed in order to incorporate FSW. Bond will help your company with all aspects of implementing FSW in production.
- Technical Support
Bond will not only help your company set up and start production with your new FSW machine(s), we will also help you learn and understand all you need to know about Friction Stir Weld Technology – allowing FSW to become a core competency for your company, and for your team to become the experts.
Custom Engineering Solutions
In cases where an application requires specialized equipment, Bond can design and build equipment to meet your needs. Although Bond’s standard machine product lines are often the most cost effective and quickest solution, there are situations in which these products just don’t fit the bill. For these situations, Bond can develop custom machine and tooling solutions.
FSW Machine Support
Bond offers full support and Services for Transformation Technologies Inc. (TTI) and Manufacturing Technology Inc. (MTI) machines, and is authorized by MTI to offer the entire FSW machine line.
