Handy friction welding machine. Patent application.

March 28, 2017

We have applied for a patent jointly with Nitto Seiki Co.

This is a small joining machine called a "handy pressure welder" that can spot-join dissimilar materials. For example, repairs (of car exterior panels) by spot-joining steel plates - aluminum plates can be done anywhere portable without electricity, as long as there is factory air (compressor).

We are currently seeking joint development of prototypes and mass production machines with companies and manufacturers that will actually use them. We have a prototype for functional verification, and we are ready to demonstrate the functionality of the machine to those who are interested.
