Paper Title:
Characterization of 150mm in Diameter NiTi SMA Ingot Produced by Electron Beam Melting
  Abstract

Earlier works showed that NiTi shape memory alloy production by electron beam melting (EBM) is a viable process in which its main characteristic is the low contamination by impurities such as carbon and oxygen. Some difficulties arise when compared to conventional vacuum induction melting (VIM) process such as composition control and complex machine operation. This work focus on the production of ever made large scale 150mm in diameter NiTi ingot produced by EBM showing its viability. The carbon contamination was only 0.016wt% compared to usual 0.05wt% of VIM process. The ingot radial composition homogeneity was proved by small variation presented by direct and reverse peak martensitic transformations temperatures which was around 2°C.
