Abstract

This paper concentrates on the laser particle injection process. Slight changes in the conditions of injection process, substantially influence the microstructure of the modified layer. TiC, TiN and SiC particles were injected into Ti-6Al-4V, which resulted in the formation of a metal matrix composite with modest dissolution of the particles added. The laser tracks with SiC exhibit a diversity of structures with high hardness. 1 Introduction The combination of many excellent material properties results in a widespread utilisation of titanium. The request for specific demands is satisfied by the versatile range of titanium alloys. The two main virtues of titanium are the uniqu
