The Index of all previous Issues of the Mid Month Bulletins can be found in the page of Welding Resources.
The subject dealt with in this issue may be quite specialized to be of daily use to the average welder. Nevertheless the Friction Stir Welding process has gained extraordinary acceptance for some of the most demanding applications and its future development seems assured.
Therefore even those who do not practice it should know about its advantages and limitations and might explore its application if suitable for determined situations.
It may be interesting to know that, besides the construction of unique pieces of equipment for the fabrication of large assemblies, conversion kits were developed for adapting, within a limited budget, standard milling machines to perform FSW for experimental or size limited work.
The addresses reported hereafter were live and correct at the time of their publication. There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.
