Abstract: A self-developed Ti-Al-V-Mo titanium alloy flux-cored wire was used as the filler metal in the experiment of narrow gap laser welding with filler wire for TC4 titanium alloy plate. The effects of laser power, oscillation parameter, oscillation mode, welding speed and wire feeding speed on weld formation were studied. The characteristics of plume and plasma in the welding process were investigated using high-speed camera system, and microstructures and properties of the welded joints were analyzed. The results showed that the weld formation was good with no obvious appearance defects found, with a laser power of 4.0 kW, a oscillation frequency of 100 Hz and oscillation range of 2 mm under the circular oscillation mode, a welding speed of 0.42 m/min, and a feeding speed of 0.6 m/min; when the end of the welding wire was 0 mm away from the liquid molten pool, the transfer mode was liquid bridge transfer, which helped to realize the stable and orderly transfer of the molten metal from the wel-ding wire to the molten pool; the 20 mm thick TC4 titanium alloy plate welded joint by narrow gap laser welding with filler wire using this welding technology achieved good microstructures and properties.
