Friction stir welding

FSW of Aluminum with PP : Joining different parts that too made of different materials is one of the essential steps while designing/engineering of materials. Presently, the energy-efficient low-weight automotive and aerospace components consist of many classes of materials, such as metals, polymers, ceramics, etc. Efficient and reliable joining of such materials of varied nature is a daunting task. We have demonstrated, for the first time, joining of a metal (aluminum) and a polymer (Polypropylene, pp) using mechanical friction.
