Article Preview

The aim of this study is to fabricate an α-case free (TiB+TiC) hybrid titanium matrix composites (TMCs) shot sleeve for aluminum alloy diecasting by in-situ synthesis and investment casting. Granular 1.88 wt% B4C was added to a titanium matrix in a vacuum induction melting furnace. The synthesized (TiB+TiC) TMCs were examined using electron probe micro-analysis and transmission electron microscopy. The results of the in-situ synthesis and investment casting of the TMCs show that our casting route constitutes an effective approach to the economic net-shape forming of TMC sleeves.
