EFFECTS OF GUIDING CHAMBER ON WELDING PRESSURE IN HOLLOW EXTRUSION DIE DESIGN OF AA7075
Keywords:extrusion, aluminum, welding pressure, die design.
Porthole die extrusion has a great advantage in the forming of hollow section of aluminum alloy tube. This paper aims at the development of an extruding seam square tube of AA7075 high strength aluminum alloy. In order to increase the welding pressure of the hollow AA7075 tube in extrusion process, a special die feature has been created. Several different proportions of chamber structure in outlet of extrusion die have been designed. The finite element analysis software DEFORM 3D to analyze various design parameters on the load – displacement and the welding pressure have been studied. In this study, a different high proportion in material guiding chamber has been defined. The results showed that if a suitable material guiding chamber has been built then welding pressure can be increased rapidly. When the ratio of chamber height and length is 2:1 the increased welding pressure is the best.
