Abstract

Mechanical alloying, especially nickel-titanium alloys, has attracted great interest recently as researchers strive to enhance the properties of nanocomposites, expand their usefulness, and how to produce them at minimal costs and produce homogeneous fine powders.In this paper, high-energy ball milling was used to produce Ti-Ni ultrafine powders. The effects of grinding parameters such as grinding tools and initial state of powders, grinding conditions such as operating times, in addition to the effect of equal size balls and the speed of the grinding machine, were investigated, while avoiding contamination of the powders in contact with air by applying silica. Milling process balls such as X-ray diffraction, SEM, EDS, plus particle size.
