Additive manufacturing is a revolution for many sectors of the industry. These new manufacturing processes allow a substantial saving of raw material while optimizing the geometry, and at the same time reducing development costs, by reducing the time between the concept and deployment phases of a product. A 3D printing device using a Cold Metal Transfer (CMT) arc welding station to melt a metallic filler wire is developed to build titanium parts by optimizing the process parameters to control metallurgical and mechanical properties of parts. In this study, two parameters (wire feed speed and movement speed of the robot) have been studied. Their impact on the metallurgical, dimensional process stability and mechanical properties of materials have been analyzed. Microstructure and mechanical properties vary depending on the energy expended during manufacture. This energy remains constant or decreases respectively when the wire feed speed or the robot head travel speed increases. Indeed, the electric generator adapts its power according to the speed of the wire. Regardless of the energy parameters, the movement speed of the robot seems to influence the wetting angles, the depth of melted zones, remelted and heat affected zones and the metallurgy with a refinement of the substructure of the deposits.
