Using the Ytterbium Fibre Laser System powdered at 3000 W, the laser powers were varied between 800 W and 2400 W while all other supporting process parameters were kept constant. The deposited Ti6Al4V-B4C composites were characterized through the surfacing microstructure, microhardness and dry sliding wear. The microstructural properties of the deposited samples were profound, with a Widmanstätten structure of α-Ti, β-Ti and (α+β) Ti phases.
