Friction welding process is a forging welding process in which work piece are joined due to heat produced by friction between two joining surfaces and upset pressure is applied by non-rotating work piece. Joining of aluminum alloy with dissimilar material is important research area to focus on as maximum aircraft structures havexx Aluminum alloy frame and aerospace designers familiar with Aluminum alloy and its design considerations. After comparison of mechanical properties and application of light weight alloys aluminum alloys, tungsten, stainless steel and copper, copper selected as dissimilar material to join with Aluminum alloy AA6063. AA 6063 also known as architectural alloy selected based upon its properties. This dissimilar joint of AA6063 and Copper has application in electrical conductors as copper is good electrical conductivity and used in maximum electrical conductors. In this research work AA6063 joined with Copper successfully using Rotary Friction Welding process. Through process study effective process parameters like Friction Pressure, Upset Pressure, Spindle Speed, and Friction Time identified and their effect on weld joint strength were studied.Testing for measuring UTS of friction welded joint conducted. Using DOE tool optimized set process parameters for friction welding identified and their effect on weld joint strength studied experimentally. Maximum UTS of 222.787 MPa for Friction welded joint achieved, bend test also performed on friction welded samples.
