Abstract

Welding is an extremely important joining method in the manufacturing process. For the last few years, the friction stir welding (FSW) method has significantly increased the quality of a weld. However, FSW has a slightly short research and application progress. The related applied experiences are not prevalent. Therefore, FSW has a lack of reference information on related welding applied design, such as fixture, joining, and integrated design. This article intends to combine innovative design methods in the application of FSW design. Additionally, this article establishes the applied design mode of FSW through case analysis to assist engineers or design personnel who are not familiar with the FSW process. This will help to decrease trial and error or failure risks in the welding process of fixture design. Encountered welding difficulties are thus solved after being guided by the theory of inventive problem solving (TRIZ) design method. By combining traditional TRIZ design methods, this article also refers to other TRIZ methods proposed by some scholars because work will often encounter various engineering challenges. This article hopes to provide welding design personnel with innovative design ideas under research and for practical application.
