- Process optimization of additively manufactured Ti-6Al-4V alloy is an important aspect of the production of engineered, high-performance parts for the aerospace and medical industries. In this study, the microstructural evolution and mechanical properties of direct energy deposition processed Ti-6Al-4V alloy were investigated using different processing parameters. Experimental analyses revealed that the line energy density corresponding to the processing parameters of the direct energy deposition process influences the properties of additively manufactured Ti-6Al-4V alloy. First, an optimal line energy density limits the incidence and size of voids resulting from a lack of fusion to enhance both alloy strength and ductility. Second, an excessively high energy density induces the coarsening of prior-beta grains to impair both alloy strength with the Hall-Petch relationship and alloy ductility due to the plastic deformation instability caused by the limited number of grains. These results indicate that both the extent of fusion and prior-beta grain size affect the mechanical properties of additively manufactured Ti-6Al-4V alloy. Moreover, the results demonstrate the utility of the line energy density-based approach in determining the optimal processing parameters for realizing high-performance materials.
