Joining and Welding University

Whether or not you have yet to specifically use MTI's machines or welding technologies, we want to share our expertise with you.

As a world-wide leader in solid-state joining and welding, we are committed to leveraging our insight, research, and experience in friction welding, friction stir welding, and resistance welding for the benefit of those who encounter these processes through their work in the manufacturing, engineering, or governance arenas.

By educating our colleagues across these disciplines about all aspects of joining and welding - its processes, applications, technology, and innovations - we hope to properly equip members of engineering governing bodies, as well as technical people, with the information necessary to launch significant new projects, programs, and products in their home environments. We believe this subject evokes common interest and ignites the imagination because of the potential for business success or continued breakthroughs in laboratory research in academic environments.
