Friction stir welding (FSW) is a solid-state joining technology. Compared with other traditional methods, FSW stands out with little distortion, high performance, low operation cost, high repeatability.

AM Energization Corp (Advanced Manufacturing LLC's sister company) is introducing friction stir welding to New England area. A CNC type and a gantry type FSW machine are installed in a 6,000 square feet workshop in Windsor. AM Energization is providing machinery, fabrication service and consultation in FSW. It has provided machines and services to battery tray production line companies and universities in the US.
