Friction stir welding is a solid state welding .It is most commonly used in light weight vehicles and aerospace etc. By applying annova find out the mechanical properties by using FSW process. Three parameter may have taken .These are tool speed, feed rate, shoulder dimeter. Initially welded the material using solid state welding. In a welding tool speed, shoulder diameter and feed rate has been varying. Friction stir welding is carried out in vertical milling machine. Aluminium 6063 is used as the work piece material for carrying out the experimentation to optimize the Tensile strength. The plates used are of thickness 6mm and length & breadth of 50mm.Using taguchi approach the nine experiment has been taken in three parameters and we found out tool speed is optimum parameter at the rest of other parameters. And the optimum tool speed is 3080 rpm. The main aim is to measure the mechanical strength of material.
