AA1050/AZ31 bimetal clad plates were fabricated via explosive welding method. In this study the process feasibility, effect of processing parameters on microstructure and mechanical properties of the bimetal butt joints obtained by friction stir welding (FSW)/laser welding (LBW) hybrid method were investigated. Two procedures, one with a friction stir welding and the other with a single-side laser beam beam, were utilized for butt-joint welding. The evolution of microstructure from the base material to the stir zone was investigated using SEM/EDX and TEM techniques. Mechanical properties were investigated by microhardness and tensile tests with digital image correlation method. These investigations have shown the possibility of making good quality of the welds with low participation of defects using both experimental procedures.
