Located in the midwest, American Friction Welding (AFW) began in 1986 by providing friction welding for the printing and computer industries. Within a short period, we realized that our services could be applied to part making throughout multiple industries while still providing current customers with a high quality product at cost-efficient prices.
Extending our friction welding applications into other industries proved to be a desirable and profitable implementation.
Our 2006 welding facility expansion turned us into the largest full service, direct-drive, rotary friction welding job shop in North America.
AFW operates a 50,000 square foot, climate-controlled facility that is easily accessible to major interstates ensuring maximum logistics efficiency.
An onsite warehouse and complete kanban program complete the cycle to meet customers’ needs and standards.
