You may uncover less expensive options which is why we invite all of our customers to visit us and all potential suppliers as a mean of validating the integrity of the equipment your critical component will be produced on. Working with a five-star supplier like AFW will ensure your part is produced with

AFW is not a machine builder. We are focused exclusively on manufacturing your part. We will not try to sell you a machine but we will be glad to develop parameters and prototypes for your designs while your equipment is being built.

AFW is KanBan friendly. Not only do we have the capacity to warehouse your product but we take pride in managing your supply chain to deliver a turnkey product.

AFW feels it is critically important that you ensure your supplier is in good standing with raw material suppliers to avoid supply chain interruptions.

AFW performs various destructive and non-destructive tests to ensure weld integrity. We encourage those new to the friction welding process to review the AWS standards and collaborate with AFW to agree upon the level of quality that is desired.

AFW uses state of the art machine controls and we are continuously implementing new technologies into our quality procedures in order to maximize visibility to critical data as your part is being produced.

You will always win when you work with a supplier like AFW. Our expertise and experience give you strategic advantages for your program.

With AFW as your partner you can be confident that your part, no matter the investment, is handled as critical to the product you manufacture and will perform above your requirements for as long as required.
