The Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy has been developed for a more suitable biomaterial in place of the Ti-6Al-4V alloy, due to the toxicity of vanadium to the human body. However, the cost of the starting material powder for MIM Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy is understood to be expensive. This study investigates the feasibility of using commercially available powders....
