Titanium alloy is an important metal material with excellent specific strength, which is widely used in aerospace field, nuclear industry, chemical medicine, and military industry. In order to investigate the connection conditions of TC4 titanium alloy and 316L stainless steel at different temperatures, the braze welding measurement with Ti57Zr13Cu21Ni9 filler metal was conducted in vacuum. The microstructure, morphology and phase of the joint were characterized by SEM (scanning electron microscope), EDS (Energy Dispersive Spectrometer) and XRD (X-ray diffraction), respectively. Microhardness and shear strength of the joint at room temperature and the bonding mechanism of TC4 and 316L were also investigated. The obtained results revealed that the main phases in the diffusion layer were Ti-based solid solution and Ti-Fe (TiFe and TiFe2) intermetallic compoundsands (IMCs) the center of the braze was mainly composed of Ti-Fe IMCs, (Ti, Zr)2(Ni, Cu), Ti-based solid solution. Additionally, the increase of brazing temperature firstly increased and then decreased the average shear strength with the maximum value of 133.9 MPa at 960 °C.
