Friction stir welding (FSW) is studied as a method of permanent bonding in special aerospace structures made of aluminum, titanium, and magnesium alloys and high-temperature steels. Experimental and industrial equipment for high-speed friction stir welding is presented. A manufacturing technology has been developed for a very hard wear-resistant welding tool of complex shape that is applicable to aviation materials.
