Ti-6Al-4V articles were produced with advanced additive manufacturing technology of Direct Energy Deposition (DED) type using profile electron beam and wire as feedstock material. The key distinctive feature of this additive manufacturing process is the applying of the hollow conical electron beam generated by low-voltage (<20kV) gas-discharge EB gun for heating and melting of the substrate and co-axially fed wire. Such configuration ensures precisely controllable liquid metal transfer from the wire end to the substrate, specific temperature gradients at the fusion area and heat flow from liquid metal pool. Such conditions of heating, melting and cooling during 3D manufacturing processing provide the ability for controllable microstructure formation, including grain size and material texture.
Influence of processing parameters and cooling conditions on crystallization, grain formation and intragrain structure of solidified material is discussed. Optimization of processing parameters allowed production of 3D Ti-6Al- 4V articles with isotropic microstructure and mechanical properties which met standard requirements for Ti-6Al-4V alloy.
