Abstract Scope Electron beam melting (EBM) is one of the layer by layer additive manufacturing technologies, which is suitable for producing near net shape reactive metallic parts with complex geometries. This paper presented a Ti-6Al-4V (grade 5) impeller with a base diameter of 100 mm and a height of 53mm that was successfully fabricated by EBM. The thinnest section of the impeller was ~0.7 mm. The porosity, microstructure and mechanical properties were investigated by means of X-ray computed tomography, X-ray diffraction, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and microhardness testing. The findings revealed that only ~0.12 vol.% pores with an average diameter of ~12 Ám were detected in the impeller. This implied that very highly dense parts could be produced by the EBM technology. Moreover, gradual change in microstructure at different locations in the impeller was observed. On the whole, the impeller exhibited high microhardness values implying high mechanical properties. These results revealed that EBM is a good method for fabricating complex-shaped industrial components with superior mechanical performance for practical application.
