Abstract

A new spot joining technology has been developed and evaluated on dual phase (DP) 965 steel and a dissimilar combination of aluminum alloy 5754-0 and DP 965. The new technique relies on the use of a consumable joining bit which employs a cutting procedure, followed by a joining procedure, to create a solid-state joint in sheet materials. Lap shear strength in DP 965 was nearly as good as that obtained using resistance spot welding, and much better than spot friction welded specimens. Multibody joining of aluminum alloy 5754-0 and DP 965 produced joints with lap shear strength of 6.2 kN. Cycle times for the multibody joining process were approximately 5 seconds.
