The aim of this investigation is to characterize the effect of process parameters applied to the laser metal deposition of Al–Cu–Ti coatings on titanium substrate (Ti–6Al–4V). After the deposition process was completed, a new hybrid coated surface emerged with improvements in the following areas: improved thermal, mechanical, and metallurgical properties. During the laser metal deposition procedure to obtain a hybrid coating on Ti–6Al–4V, certain process parameters were employed to achieve the optimum results which are the scanning speed (1.0 m/min) and the laser power of the procedure, which was varied between 900 and 1000 W. The microstructural analysis was carried out using the scanning electron microscope (SEM) and an optical microscope (OPM). The mechanical properties of the samples were characterized using microhardness test.
