Conference Abstract: MolyWorks is producing landing gear components by additive manufacturing. The development provides a determination of design values for derived mechanical properties of Ti 10-2-3 powder produced by the Greyhound. The process under development conforms to material specifications required for airworthiness certification and is a solution to supply chain challenges including obsolescence (availability) and diminishing manufacturing sources. The landing gear components have been down-selected as non-critical, non-load-bearing parts that fit the criteria of high geometric complexity and irregularly procured. Research and development presented will included material coupons and test results.
