Nanosized TiCu powders were synthesized by high energy ball milling of micron-sized Ti and Cu powders. Dense TiCu could be consolidated by high frequency induction sintering method within 1 min using both horizontally milled elemental powders of Ti+Cu and mechanically synthesized powders of TiCu. The consolidation was accomplished under the combined effect of induced current and applied mechanical pressure. The grain size, sintering behavior and hardness of TiCu sintered from both powders were examined.
