The MTI Difference
Our simple, modern development process sets us apart from traditional, overwhelming processes. We help you find and navigate the best path to successfully implement friction welding into your part design and production. We stand ready to support you on your timeframe and wherever you may be in your journey to friction welding. Working with MTI should be an easy and rewarding collaboration from start to finish. We’ll build a machine for you that makes the part, we’ll make the part for you, or we’ll help you make a part better.
• Process definement • Research and development • Conceptual design engineering
• Metallurgical evaluations • Quality verification • Material procurement • Cost confirmation
• Traditional machine build • Manufacturing services
• Worldwide service and support • Preventative maintenance • Parts assurance
We kick off the process by hosting you and your team for a site visit to our manufacturing facility. Or better yet, we will come to you. This helps both our teams develop a collaborative working relationship in conceptualizing the best friction welding solution for your industry application.
We’ll listen, discuss, and review your complete pre- and post-weld processes and part functionality to fully understand your application and then show you how our multifaceted approach:
• Expanding conventional thinking about manufacturing, welding and joining
• Reducing cycle time
• Increasing throughput
We can help you increase the performance, capabilities, or range of your product, and help reduce costs by exploring:
- • process improvements
- • new designs
- • new applications
We tailor solutions for your applications and manufacturing processes, for example:
- • custom tooling and parts
- • components with difficult welding conditions previously considered unachievable
- • integrated automation so you have a complete welding system, not just a machine
Time to let the fun begin! Now we can determine which route we should go to produce the best results for you – traditional friction welding machine build, parts production from our Manufacturing Services group, or a strategy that includes both. Many customers start with a development program, then utilize our Manufacturing Services group for parts production while their machine is built. Others leverage our Manufacturing Services group to support their production spikes that exceed their machine capacity.
Helping companies worldwide solve their manufacturing problems is why we design, manufacture, install, and service a complete line of integrated friction welding machines. MTI has designed, built, and supported over 800 friction welding machine solutions worldwide. Read our customer stories.
Not enough volume to justify the cost of building your own machine? Looking to support your production demand spikes or develop the next generation of friction welding parts without crimping your current machine production? We serve as your single-source solution, developing and producing your parts to save you time and money, all while mitigating risk to your parts program.
The automotive industry demands a machine that can keep product costs low, meet rigorous standards, and keep up with changing trends. MTI’s answer is SPARTAN. A line of standard Direct Drive Friction Welders, SPARTAN sticks to the basics to provide you with consistent, durable welds at a reduced cost. The SPARTAN is available in 5, 15, 30, and 45-ton configurations.
