Forging the future
with a trusted bond.

What We Do

Friction-based technologies for joining and processing metals in a high-performance world.

Bond Technologies is leading the way in the design and construction of machinery for Friction Stir Welding (FSW), Friction Extrusion (FE), and Refill Friction Stir Spot Welding (RFSSW). These solid-state processes offer the industry new ways of processing and joining materials with many unique, desirable characteristics.


Bond Technologies produces equipment that uses frictional heat to process or join a variety of metals. These processes share low residual stress, fine microstructure, and other desirable properties. These processes are beneficial in eliminating the need for filler metal and shielding gas in many cases.


What is friction stir welding, and how is it used?

Friction stir welding has been effectively used in many industries including Shipbuilding, Aerospace, and Automotive. Refill friction stir spot welding is especially useful as an alternative to resistance spot welding and rivets. Friction extrusion is an exciting and relatively new process for producing materials and shapes with Novel Properties.
