Friction welding applications

Friction welding is a tried and tested “joining technology” that has been used by aviation and automotive industries for decades.

Thanks to intense development efforts, this innovative technology was further optimised and applied to other areas of application in recent years.

Within the pewag group, this technology is now available for the production of a novel, premium-grade chain generation.

We are happy to put our expertise at your disposal in order to work out the specific application scenarios and solutions that are right for you!
