EN The article presents the results of ultrasonic testing of Ti6Al4V material produced by the conventional method and the laser bed fusion method. Modern manufacturing techniques, such as additive manufacturing, allow the production of parts with complex shapes. It is important to control the condition of such components throughout their lifetime. The purpose of this article was to determine the basic acoustic properties of Ti6Al4V material produced by two different methods— bar drawing and the additive manufacturing method. On this basis, an inspection scheme was developed for adhesive joints, the components of which are made by additive manufacturing technology. The decibel drops in the amplitudes of pulses reflected from the boundary of the adhesive-Ti6Al4V-AM and adhesive-Ti6Al4V joints were determined. The decibel drops for the connection of materials made with additive technology are higher than for the material made in a conventional way. The difference in decibel drop in the amplitudes of the additive manufactured material versus the drawn rod, depending on the ultrasonic head, can be up to 60%. The results of the study provide an important practical guideline for testing adhesive joints of parts made with additive manufacturing technology.
