Friction Stir Welding of Extruded Aluminum for Automotive Applications 2004-01-1333

The use of Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is a robust process to use in the assembly of aluminum automotive components. The advantages include: minimal distortion, higher tensile strength, lower costs and improved weld capability than other joining processes. Though a simple process, there are key parameters that must be carefully selected to optimize the weld. This paper will focus on the use of FSW to assemble extrusions into automotive components.
