Friction Stir Welding (FSW) was invented by Wayne Thomas at TWI (The Welding Institute), and the first patent applications were filed in the UK in December 1991. Friction stir welding (FSW) is the latest technology in the area of metal joining and is perhaps the most promising of all the welding processes. Friction Stir Welding (FSW) has become a major joining process in the railway, aerospace, auto industries and ship building industries especially in the fabrication of aluminium alloys. This paper looks at the review, on friction stir welding process, various welding variables like tool rotation, welding speed, tool tilt angle, plunge depth and tool pin geometry, for the welding of aluminium alloys.
