This article studies the feasibility of applying Friction Stir Welding (FSW) to an aluminum 6061 corner joint. The friction tool rotated at constant speed (2000 RPM) whilst feed rate varied in 10, 15 and 30 mm/minutes. Generally the lower feed rate produces higher tensile strength due to higher heat is embedded in the base metal, but the 15 mm/minute feed rate exhibited the least tensile strength. Lower feed rate reduces Mg alloy in base metal which in turn decreases the tensile strength. The final tensile strength is the compromise between higher heat input and lower Mg content that is why the 15 mm/minute has lowest tensile strength.
