Abstract

Ti-6Al-4V is one of the most widely used titanium alloy in industrial applications because of its lightweight and corrosion resistance. The new generation of high power fiber lasers presents several benefits, namely, high power, low beam divergence, and compact size. These lasers can be used in a diversity of materials as the low wavelength that characterizes them allows absorption by almost all metals and alloys. This article presents a research about the weldability of the Ti-6Al-4V alloy using a fiber laser. Weld beads produced with different processing parameters were morphologically characterized under optical microscopy and the microstructures obtained were investigated.
