Ti-(2-20)Fe alloys (with 2%, 5%, 10%, 15% or 20%Fe) were fabricated by powder metallurgy technique using elemental powders as raw materials. The effects of sintering temperature and Fe content on microstructure and mechanical properties of the alloys were studied. The results show that the Ti-xFe alloys with high-density (about 98%) and uniform microstructure can be produced at the sintering temperature range of 1100-1300℃. With the increasing of Fe content, the sintering temperature for densification significantly decreases, while the grain size of β phase decreases and the α lamellars become less and thinner. As Fe content is up to 20%, the alloy samples consist of single β grains. In comparison, the Ti-15Fe alloy sintered at 1150℃ exhibits the superior mechanical properties with hardness of 43.9 HRC, elastic modulus of 64.6 GPa, compressive strength of 2702 MPa, and compression rate of 32.7%.
