Friction Stir Welding, Fusion Welding, Tensile Strength


Friction Stir Welding (FSW) has become a major joining process in the aerospace, railway and ship building industries especially in the fabrication of aluminium alloys. The process uses a spinning non-consumable tool to generate frictional heat in the work piece. Aluminium metal is not possible with arc welding, MIG welding and TIG Welding, it is also observed that aluminium is welded by gas welding but the strength of the joint is very poor. The welded joint mostly failed at the joining point. So the other alternative is Friction Stir Welding. In FSW, the aluminium is fully fusion by own due to friction heat.
