Powder Metallurgy (PM) is a very attractive method for producing titanium alloys, which can be near net shape formed and have freedom in composition selection. However applications are still limited due to product cost affordability. In this paper, we will discuss a possible cost-effective route, combining fast heating and hot processing, to produce titanium alloys with similar or even better mechanical properties than that of ingot metallurgy titanium alloys. Several titanium alloys, such as, Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-5Fe, and Ti-5Al-5V-5Mo-3Cr alloy, were successfully produced from HDH titanium powder and other master alloy powders using the developed processing route. The effect of processing route on microstructural variation and mechanical properties were discussed. And the potential for scaling-up the process was also discussed.
