In this paper, tensile test was performed on pure titanium sheet (CP Ti sheet) with HCP structure in each direction to evaluate mechanical and surface properties and analyze microstructural changes during plastic deformation. We also evaluated forming limits of Ti direction in dome-type punch stretching test using a non-contact three-dimensional optical measurement system. As a result, it was revealed the pure titanium sheet has strong anisotropic property in yield stress, stress-strain curve and anisotropy coefficient according to direction. It was revealed that twinning occurred when the pure titanium sheet was plastic deformed, and tendency depends differently on direction and deformation mode. Moreover, this seems to affect the physical properties and deformation of the material. In addition, it was revealed the pure titanium sheet had different surface roughness changes in 0 degree direction and 90 degree direction due to large difference of anisotropy, and this affects the forming limit. It was revealed the forming limit of each direction obtained through the punch stretching test gave higher value in 90 degree direction compared with forming limit in 0 degree direction.
