The design of fixture plays an important role in Friction Stir Welding process (FSW). Proper designing of fixture is the one of the major solution to the problems arising during FSW process. FSW of aluminium alloys require a careful designing of both fixture and welding tool. The fixture should be designed and fabricated in such a way that it is able to bear the high magnitude forces and high temperature during welding process. In this paper, designing of fixture is done using SOLIDWORKS 2D drawing. While designing the fixture certain things are kept in mind such as proper spacing given for accommodation of backing plate and the metal to be welded.
