Beyond welding

A range of integrations to broaden the possibilities of your FSW machine

All our friction welding machines are assembled exclusively with components developed in-house. Not only: at FPT Industrie we have over 50 years of experience in the production of CNC machine tools. This means that we can integrate your milling, boring and turning systems with friction stir welding technology, optimising results, times and production costs.
