Yes it can be done but

titanium burns when subjected to the laser's heat. See this article:

By the way, you need a class "D" fire extinguisher to put out Titanium fires. Fires can also start during regular machining.

From Wiki:

Sodium Chloride (Super-D, Met-L-X or METAL.FIRE.XTNGSHR) contains sodium chloride salt and thermoplastic additive. Plastic melts to form an oxygen-excluding crust over the metal, and the salt dissipates heat. Useful on most alkali metals including sodium and potassium, and other metals including magnesium, titanium, aluminum, and zirconium
