Wheels UpFriction Welding for Aerospace and Aircraft Engine Components

High Altitude, High Quality

MTI – A Trusted Leader in Aerospace Engineering

From an aircraft’s first takeoff to its final landing, the parts that help lift a plane into flight need to be able to withstand the high stress and vigorous demands of air travel. That’s why all mainstream aerospace engine manufacturers have an MTI-built friction welder on their production floors. For decades, we’ve worked with high-profile aerospace companies to develop new, innovative parts and solutions that are stronger, lighter and resistant to high temperatures. With increased joint strength and the ability to join dissimilar metals, friction welding can help make good parts great and strong parts even stronger.

WORLD’S LARGEST INERTIA FRICTION WELDER FOR CONTRACT MANUFACTURING

The Model 400 is specially designed for big jobs – 450 tons of weld force, to be exact. The unique rotary friction welder mitigates risk and is available for contract friction welding and production use. Featuring a large assortment of tooling, the 400 is ideal for “special” higher force large part applications.
