Tutor description

As the automotive industry trends towards increased use of aluminum, the friction stir welding (FSW) process offers many potential benefits for joining of aluminum. In contrast to most other joining processes, FSW is a more robust process, being more capable of handling the variations inherent in high volume production.

ReferencesAbstractAs the automotive industry trends towards increased use of aluminum, the friction stir welding (FSW) process offers many potential benefits for joining of aluminum. In contrast to most other joining processes, FSW is a more robust process, being more capable of handling the variations inherent in high volume production. FSW also provides for improved mechanical properties, as compared to other joining processes. However, FSW requires significant process forces. In the initial stages of development, FSW had unacceptably low travel speeds. This paper will describe applications for the FSW process in the automotive industry, as well as suitable friction stir welding equipment. In addition, there will be discussion of the process limitations and how they have been overcome to make FSW a very robust process for the automotive industry.IntroductionWith FSW having many advantages, including improved mechan
