Topics on Recent Friction Stir Welding Developments in Japan

Abstract:

Article Preview

Friction Stir Welding is the most remarkable welding technology that has been invented and developed in last decade. It made it possible to join a number of light metals that were previously believed difficulties to get reliable welds without defects including distortion. This summarizing report tried to clarify the recent trend of this novel technology in Japan. It reveals that Japan industry may have the most active potentials of developments in the world, particularly in the field of practical applications.
