Paper Title:
Tool Path Design in Friction Stir Spot Welding of AA6082-T6 Aluminum Alloys
  Abstract

In the paper, a variation of the Friction Stir Spot Welding (FSSW) process has been considered. In particular, a particular tool path is given after the sinking phase nearby the initial penetration site. The process mechanics was highlighted and the joint strength was considered at the varying of the most relevant process parameters. Furthermore macro and micro analyses were developed in order to highlight the process mechanics and the local material microstructure evolution. The investigated technology appears a promising joining technique in order to develop effective spot joints.
