After considerable research and development, Liburdi Automation shipped their new Friction Stir Welding System to the University of Waterloo.
The Friction Stir Welding System is the first of its kind to be designed and built in Canada. The Friction Stir Welder can generate the high tool forces required to process steels while using force and IR temperature feedback for closed-loop control. Professor Adrian Gerlich and his research team at the Centre for Advanced Materials Joining (CAMJ) currently use this system on campus.
The University of Waterloo is one of many academic institutes Liburdi Automation has partnered with, including McMaster University, McGill University, and the University of British Columbia.
Liburdi Automation plans to continue its academic efforts in pursuit of advancing the various industries Liburdi Automation serves.
