The possibility is studied of preparing polymetal specimens of Ti and Ti–6Al–4V by direct laser deposition. The microstructure of deposited specimen zones given heat treatment shows a transition zone from (α+β) phase from the side of Ti–6Al–4V alloy to α-phase from the Ti side. No cracks are observed within the structure. With a change-over from Ti–6Al–4V to Ti microhardness varies from 380 to 200 HV.
