Friction Stir welding (FSW) is a novel green assembling technology because of its environment free and energy efficient nature. This strong state joining process includes a cylindrical non-consumable device comprising of a shoulder and additionally a pin probe. The shoulder applies a descending pressure to the work-piece surface, obliges the plasticized material around the pin, produces heat through the erosion and causes plastic deformation in a generally thin layer under the base surface of the shoulder. FSW, has been developed to manufacture composites, locally eliminate casting defects, refine microstructure and/or improve the associated mechanical and physical properties including strength, ductility, fatigue, creep, formability and corrosion resistance. So basically, shoulder and pin geometry influence the properties of the weld zone. This review paper represents the effect of bobbin tool on the properties of the weld zone. Bobbin tool consist two shoulders: one on upper side and second one at below the workpiece which give the support to the weld zone.
