A New Approach to the Fabrication of Thin-Walled Plate Component through Typical Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing
Keywords:Welding, stainless steel, thin-walled component, plate components, WAAM, additive manufacturing
Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) is a trendy practice evolving nowadays for the development of metal parts employing a suitable welding process with the help of automation and additive manufacturing concept. In this work, a new way of fabrication for the metallic components based the geometry a shape of final component is introduced as a typical wire arc additive manufacturing. A thin-walled plate is attempted with AISI 316L grade of austenitic stainless steel using flux cored arc welding process with linear manipulator automation to control the welding torch. The fabricated thin-walled component is found be a successful component but still a lot of quality analysis to be done for making the plate to meet the ensured quality. This Typical WAAM is believed to be a successful approach for the fabrication of metallic plate like components with cost and quality effectiveness.
