Abstract
Titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) Grade 5 has been regarded as the most useful alloy for the aerospace applications, due to their light weight properties. Today, laser technology is an energetic process in which the beam ejected can travel a longer distance and spot on the focused surface. The combination of metallic powder and laser beam has been used concurrently to form a solid figure. However, this combination has generated a permanently solidified metallurgical bonding between the laser-deposited metallic powders. Several research works have been conducted to improve the mechanical properties of the primary alloy, Ti-6Al-4V. This article conversely highlights the series of work that have been conducted on improving the mechanical properties and microstructures of the primary alloy with the addition of titanium carbide (TiC). The Ti-6Al-4V alloy has been widely selected in most critical part of a component. Their reinforcement with TiC composite particle has been achieved successfully through the optimal usage of laser technology. The characteristics of the reinforced component have vehemently improved the mechanical properties such as the tensile strength, wear resistance, fracture toughness and hardness; as well as the morphologies and phases of the microstructures.
