CNC Series

Intelligent, Cost-effective FSW Platforms for Production, Prototyping and R&D

The I-STIR CNC Series is composed of an array of reliable and cost-effective solutions for medium and thin gauge friction stir welding (FSW) applications. The series combines advanced process controls and instrumentation with affordable, commercially available milling machine platforms, and is available in a broad selection of standard work envelopes. The machine frames are based on a standard milling machine design that has been proven in hundreds of industrial applications and tens of thousands hours of operation.

 

Product/System Uses

The I-STIR CNC Series is an array of reliable and cost-effective solutions for medium and thin gauge friction stir welding applications.

Leveraging precision force and motion control expertise, these systems provide unparalleled load position control and accuracy for 2-D production welding, prototyping, and research and development.
