Friction Processing Research Unit

Anyone interested in friction stir welding or processing, from a basic understanding of the process and materials used, to those interested in how a process can be integrated and optimised for various manufacturing applications. It is our goal to bring both academia and industry together so that they may both benefit from interaction and information sharing. This includes end-users and scientists as well as engineers and technicians engaged in developing friction processing technology for the manufacturing and joining of various components, alloys and materials.
