In friction welding, the joints are formed in the solid-state by utilizing the heat generated by friction. The aim of this investigation is getting friction weld component of Aluminum 6351, steel 304 and enhancing the friction welding parameters so as to build up the weld quality. This paper examines the use of the Taguchi experiment design strategy for augmenting tensile strength of friction welding Al (6351) and steel 304. A symmetrical exhibit of L9 was; Using ANOVA and signal to noise ratio of critical analysis, the impact of the rigidity of friction welding process boundary (Rotational speed, forging force, time) is assessed and ideal welding condition for maximizing tensile strength is resolved and furthermore NDT (Radiography test) testing to gauge the progression of the weld joint.
