Based on many years of experience and knowledge gained from a large number of FSW-applications, we develop and fabricate high-quality machine tools through to fully automated and interlinked production lines which are optimally customized to the respective requirements. In all systems, high process-functionality, high system availability as well as productivity are significant development factors.


MaXstir tool range

As a single-source supplier of FSW technology, Stirtec also offers high-quality tools. Our innovative MaXstir tool range is based on many man-years of research and development in the areas of process and materials technology.

All of the MaXstir tools are characterized by high functionality, process reliability and exceptional wear resistance which results in a long service life. Moreover, our tools also enable comparatively higher welding speeds for the respective application areas.

A broad range of material combinations can be welded using MaXstir tools, such as aluminium/aluminium (including high-strength alloys) or different metals, such as aluminium with steel, copper, magnesium or titanium.



The FSW-Technology-Workshop offers the ideal access into the world of FSW. It communicates the fundamentals of FSW, its range of application possibilities as well as the processes required for the implementation of FSW in a company. Read more

Contract R&D

The innovative FSW-technology provides our customers a multitude of product innovations. On the basis of our scientific know-how, we offer development services for specific product and process questions, such as feasibility studies, fabrication process analyses or tool development for all weldable materials and material combinations.


We offer prototyping as an additional module in combination with Contract R&D, extending from functional models to pilot or pre-series production. Our customers benefit from our experience enabling highest quality and primarily shortest cycle times.

Qualification & Training according to ISO Standard

FSW is a welding process which is subject to internationally applicable standards and qualification and/or certification procedures. This service package offers our customers competent support and consultation with the objective of obtaining these certifications.

WPS – Welding Procedure Specification

The creation of application-specific WPS (Welding Procedure Specification) is generally the responsibility of companies, that bring welded components to the market. Our service includes the support for the creation of specification-compliant WPS’s for FSW-applications.


We are your reliable partner for all questions regarding FSW. You too can profit from the competence and know-how of our FSW-expert-team. Please contact us directly or at Our specialists will be happy to advise you.


Stirtec offers manufacturing services, perfectly tailored to your specific requirements from pre-serial parts to mass production and from pure FSW-service to final machined components. On request, we also take on the supply of the primary materials.
