As a new type of lightweight and high temperature structural material, TiAl alloy has become the most ideal candidate in the fields of aerospace, military and civil products, and it has a good perspective in the industrialization. Refining and improving the microstructure of TiAl alloys has higher theoretical significance and engineering value. In this work, the solidified Ti-48Al-2Cr-2Nb alloy applied electric current pulse is studied, and its microstructural evolution and mechanism are analyzed. The results show that the electric current pulse refines the primary dendrite arm spacing, columnar crystal size and interlamellar spacing of the Ti-48Al-2Cr-2Nb alloy. The primary phase is α without electric current pulse, the angle of the Ti-48Al-2Cr-2Nb alloy that between the lamellar orientation and the growth direction is usually bigger, even perpendicular to the growth direction approximately. The applied electric current pulse causes the dendrite to melt and break, and promotes the occurrence and increase of the primary β phase, the lamellae orientation having a small angle or 45° between the growth direction is further increasing. The electric current pulse reduces the solid-liquid phase free energy and atomic diffusion activation energy, reduces the nucleation barrier and the critical nucleation energy, thereby atomic diffusion and the crystallization nucleation is promoted to a certain extent, the primary dendritic spacing and columnar crystals are remarkably refined. The electric current pulse causes the transformation of the primary phase and its corresponding crystal orientation relationship is the main reason for the change of lamellar orientation.
