The manufacturing industry, aluminum alloys were used in various applications such as the electric vehicle industry, marine industry, and also aircraft industry. However, welding on some grades of aluminum alloys, for instant Al5083, might lead to problems at weldment such as crack, pinholes, or incomplete weld joint. Friction stir welding was one of solid-state welding which might suit for such aluminum alloys. Therefore, this research was aimed to investigate mechanical properties of weldment on aluminum alloy 5083 welded by friction stir welding. Small friction stir welding machine was applied in this study. Two-factor of the welding parameters, rotation speed, and welding speed, were studied. The rotation speed of three levels (1200, 1500, 1800 rpm), and two levels of welding speed (30 and 60 mm/min) were employed. It was found that rotation speed of 1800 rpm and welding speed of 30 mm/min was found to yield good weldment and maximum tensile strength 224.41 MPa or 68.65% of based material.
