This paper contains the report of study of Aluminium-6082 to Aluminium-6082 and Brass-319 to Brass-319 welding joints weld by Friction stir welding process. The size of the work pieces used for the welding is (50mm x 35mm x 5mm) . Friction stir welding process allows achieving high quality joint when compared to conventional welding process. This paper mainly focuses on the welded joints of Aluminium and Brass.The main welding parameters which have a great influence on welding joints are Rotational speed, transverse speed and depth of cut. In this study the Rotational speed of the tool were varied from 710 to 1120 Rpm and tranverse speed were kept at 20 mm/min and depth of cut is maintained at 4.5mm throughout the experiment. The welded joints were then subjected to mechanical testing such as tensile testing,hardening test and microscopy of the welded joints.As per the reports of tensile testing,hardening test the welded joint of Aluminium is having high strength at the optimum speed of 900Rpm and the corresponding tensile strength is 173.19N/mm2. For Brass the joint having high strength when the speed is 710 Rpm and the respective tensile strength is 231.360N/mm2. Then the microscopy test is conducted as per the Standard of ASTME112 on the high tensile strength welded joints at 200x magnification and then brinells hardness test is conducted on the samples.
