About Mobi-Weld

Project Concept

The Mobi-Weld project will develop a prototype, mobile FSW system, which will be designed and constructed for use in final fabrication/assembly in a shipyard. A schematic of the applications and the system in use is shown in the figure below. The Mobi-Weld system will also include modular construction to create the possibility of further exploitation in other industry sectors.
