Composite Ti aerospace components

The component considered in TC7 consist in an actuator support which connects the mechanism that allows the nose landing gear (NLG) to open and close with the main body of the aircraft.

The component is used for aerospace applications and the aim of TC7 is to show that the component manufactured by AM utilizing Al alloys reinforced by SiC NPs, meets the material characteristics in the industry and provides a substantial weight saving by reducing the material needed to produce a specific product and thus providing environmental advantages for the aerospace supply chain meeting all performance and safety characteristics. The value chain of TC 7 included two PLs (MWAM and DED-Borealis).
