Study on Thixoforming Process of 15%SiCp/2A14 Composite for Production of Track Shoe
Semi-solid thixoforming process was applied to produce track shoe of 15%SiCp/2A14 composites. The thixoforming process optimization was simulated by using Deform 3D software. The effects of forging pressure, slug size and reheating temperature on formability of track shoe were investigated. The results showed that a track shoe with better integrity was prepared by optimizing the process, and its microstructure and mechanical properties could meet requirements.
