Abstract: FSW (Friction Stir Welding) and TIGW (Tungsten Inert Gas Welding) are broadly known welding processes, FSW and TIGW both are acknowledged throughout the industries globally in current age. The aluminum alloys are used widely in Aviation, Shipbuilding and also in general engineering because it is having many applications in these sectors. In this paper a comparative study of Aluminum Alloy AA6062 properties on TIGW (Tungsten Inert Gas Welding) and FSW (friction stir welding) are obtained. Mostly in all the welding processes the purpose is to get welded joint by having its desired weld bead parameters, higher mechanical properties with the low distortion. The quality of the weld is determined through mechanical properties, bead geometry, and distortion. In this paper AA6062 (Aluminum Alloy) similar metal is joined, appraised and compared in TIGW and FSW welding processes for studying the welding process parameters and there different configurations.
