Pack rolling method is preferred to conventional rolling method to process thin sheets or foils out of titanium alloys because of their relatively narrow processing window and possible surface contamination during the elevated temperature processing. In this paper, the core sheets of 5mm thick with equiaxed alpha + transformed beta structure were encapsulated in mild steel cover material and hot rolled in a four high reversing hot rolling mill. The following results were obtained; The optimal pack assembly condition and pack rolling process factor were produced. The effect that the difference in deformation resistance of cover material and core material in pack rolling has been considered. The S45C mild steel is the most suitable for the cover material. The cover material is subjected to the same rolling process as the core material when the initial core and total thickness ratio is 0.3. The reduction in pack rolling should be selected in the range of 20% to 25% to produce flat sheet. Tensile properties of the pack rolled sheet are isotropic in both RD and TD rolling direction which meet the requirements of the standard AMS4911.
