Metallurgical and Corrosion Property of Additive Manufactured Titanium Alloy-Ti6Al4V
Additive manufacturing (AM) is an important manufacturing technology that has changed the way products are designed and manufactured. Laser Metal Deposition (LMD), an AM technology, has the capability of producing components using a 3-Dimensional CAD model, through a layer by layer formation process just like any other AM technology. In this study, the influence of the scanning speed on the corrosion property of Titanium alloy-Ti6Al4V using LMD process was investigated. The scanning speed varied between 0.02 m/s and 0.14 m/s while other processing parameters were kept constant. The electrochemical corrosion test was conducted in sodium chloride (NaCl) solution. The result revealed that the corrosion resistance property was found to increase with the scanning speed.
