Design And Manufacturing Al-Si (Er4043) Aluminum Aircraft Landing Gear Base Plate Using Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing Process (Waam)
The Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing or WAAM is strategy of completing the 3D manufacturing by means of arch through feedstock deposits layer and then repetitive layer line approaching to most precisive manner. WAAM can be better option to manufacture than the traditional method. The WAAM came into action more due to popular versatile design which can be easy to attain after some modification in the science. Though this method is not much feasible for manufacturing the components. All the same time many designers are lighting up on the manufacturing of shapes through it. Further, this can be the better crucial science after some crucial modifications. The main found of mechanism on aluminum 4043 is less material wastage, high buy-to-fly (BTF) ratio and anti-corrosive property. The aluminum consists of traces of hydrogen in the molten pool and released on solid to become hole indicates main reason of porosity. Hence aluminum is also not viable for commercials due to weld defect and turbulent melt pool which is caused due material deposition and reproducibility. This research paper conclude test on aluminum 4043 in the line of microstructure, chemical composition and Brinell hardness. The approach in the paper conclude for uses of aluminum 4043 to its best peak application.
