Abstract: The present work investigates the influence of process parameters for laser surface alloying with molybdenum on Nickel Titanium, which is extensively used in medical devices industries. A systematic study of process parameters such as laser power, scanning velocity and pre-paste thickness upon the Mo concentration was carried out. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to understand the significance of the process variables affecting the process factors. A functional relationship between the melt profile, structure and micro hardness was identified after a detailed analysis of the variables involved. Laser power and scan speed are found to be most significant process parameters influencing the melt depth. The weight % of Mo and of Ni are directly and inversely proportional to the dilution ratio (DR) respectively. A favorable hardness value can be achieved by an attainable Mo content. With a set of optimal parameters, Mo alloyed layer with hardness three times the substrate NiTi was achieved.
