A series of trials to fusion weld commercially pure titanium (CPTi) to stainless steel 304 (SS304) have been conducted using laser beam welding (LBW) and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). Neither technique produced adequate weld joints with LBW showing a more promising result, while GTAW yielded separation of the workpieces immediately after welding. Cracking and fracturing took place mainly on the SS304 side, which was explained by the differences in the materials’ thermal properties. Various intermetallic phases formed during welding that were identified using energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD) technique and were compared with an isothermal ternary phase diagram of Fe-Cr-Ti. Their corresponding hardness values are reported and correlated with alloy compositions.
