Abstract

Friction stir welding (FSW) has been widely applied to metals with moderate melting points, primarily aluminum alloys. Recently, tool materials that withstand the high stresses and temperatures necessary for FSW of materials with high melting point have been developed. In the present study, polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN) tool was used for partially penetrated FSW of Inconel Alloy 600, and a defect-free weld was successfully produced. Microstructural characteristics, and mechanical and corrosion properties of the weld are succinctly reported in this paper.
