Mazak MegaStir: A Better Weld

Join Mazak MegaStir for a day of informative Friction Stir Welding (FSW) training and demonstrations for A Better Weld. See how Mazak’s VTC-300C FSW HYBRID Multi-Tasking system combines vertical machining center milling capabilities and Friction Stir Welding (FSW) joining technologies on one machine platform for single-setup DONE IN ONE® processing. In addition to live FSW demonstrations, you’ll learn how MegaStir Diamond FSW tooling will increase your output and further drive your production.

You also won’t want to miss FSW training sessions throughout the day with Murray Mahoney, first adopter of FSW in North America and author of the authoritative book Friction Stir Welding and Processing.

Machines in Action:


The VTC-300C FSW combines vertical machining center milling capabilities with those of FSW. Full-penetration, defect-free welds are created by the Mazak FSW head that uses a non-consumable tool and a solid-state joining process that is well suited for joining alloys with low melting points like aluminum, brass and copper. The machine features a powerful CAT 40 taper spindle, full vertical traveling column design and fixed table for machining extremely long and heavy workpieces.
