The traverse speed, tool tilt angle, and rotational speed of friction stir processing all have an effect on the strength of the processed area. As a result, these process parameters may be chosen and configured correctly to maximise the processed zone's strength. Taguchi's work aims to optimise process parameters such as traverse speed, tool tilt angle, and rotational speed in order to increase ultimate tensile strength in aluminium 6061 sheets with a thickness of 10 mm and a polypropylene granule content of 5%. Additionally, the three components on three levels are employed as the Taguchi technique's orthogonal L9 array. ANOVA was used, as well as validation tests. The results demonstrate that the rotational speed, traverse speed, and tool angle all have an effect on the FSP strength. The highest strength intensity was 16.06 MPa, and optimization data revealed 40 mm/min, 1420 rpm, and a 1o tool angle, traverse speed, and rotational speed.
