Due to higher demands for tailor welded blanks (TWBs) applications in transportation industry, it is worthy to understand their forming characteristics in manufacturing processes, especially the deep drawing, in order to produce products with higher qualities. Due to differences between the base materials strength as well as existence of the welding zone, the formability of TWBs is frequently less than the base metals. Comparison of weld line movement and drawing depth in TWBs designed and produced by laser welding and friction stir welding are the aims of this study. Because of creation of limited heat affected zone area and suitable keyhole, laser welding is more appropriate for TWBs production comparing to the other welding processes. The parameters of the friction stir welding process are very important due to having high influence on complicated plastic zone variation, material flow pattern and temperature distribution in TWBs sheets. In this paper, having designed the experiments, the effect of blank holder force and linear welding velocity on drawing depth and weld line displacement of TWBs have been investigated. Moreover, the harnesses of the weld zone in both processes have been examined. Results show that by increasing the linear velocity of laser welding, the amount of weld line displacement and drawing depth will be increased. Furthermore, the higher linear velocity of friction stir welding will result in the higher weld line displacement and drawing depth. Likewise, the harnesses of the laser welding zone are higher than those ones for friction stir welding zone.
