In recent years many titanium alloys have emerged, each of them associated with a range of different heat treatments. Thus, several microstructures have been studied to varying degrees. For example, the Ti64 titanium alloy, mostly known for its a + ß structure, can display a di?erent state: the structure, inducing nonstandard mechanical behaviours. This work presents chip formation in this specific microstructure where a strong heterogeneity is observed and where the shear band formation is a function of the relationship between the shear direction and the microstructure orientation. From these reasons, major di?erences are observed in the chip morphology, within the same cutting condition, in comparison to the bimodal structure where a single chip morphology is obtained for each cutting condition. A section of this paper is devoted to the presentation of the beta microstructure where di?erent configurations can be seen within the same chip. Next, the influence of cutting conditions on the chip formation is studied. Finally, the discussion explains the di?erent chip formation scenarios according to the workpiece microstructure to be cut.
