Control of crystallographic orientation by metal additive manufacturing process of β-type Ti alloys based on the bone tissue anisotropy
Division of Materials and Manufacturing Science, Graduate School of Engineering; & Anisotropic Design and Additive Manufacturing Research Center, Osaka University
Variation in the scanning strategy for β-type Ti alloys during additive manufacturing (AM) enables the fabrication of a singlecrystal-like microstructure possessing a crystallographic texture, in which the low-Young’s modulus-<100> direction is aligned along a specific direction. Thus, metal biomaterial with low elasticity, comparable to the bone Young’s modulus, can be developed by AM, which will contribute to suppress the stress shielding of bone and prevent degradation of bone tissue anisotropy.
