Abstract: - Aluminium alloys are extensively used in the field of manufacturing because of its immense range of applications. Friction stir welding is one of the major processes which are used for joining alloys of aluminium. This type of welding technique has shown very positive results in welding of aluminium alloys. In this research, variation in mechanical properties of friction stir welded aluminium alloys (6000 series) is observedconcerning variation in their input parameters, i.e., feed rate, tool rpm and tool tipcross-section. Conical, square and triangular tool tip cross sections are used in this research paper for friction stir welding of aluminium alloys. Variation in mechanical properties of hardness & roughness is observed in this research study and are calculated with the help of Taguchi's approach
