Analysis of Roughness Parameters Determining Tribological Properties in Hard Turned Surfaces
Keywords:wear-resistance, hard turning, surface roughness
Hard-machined components built into automotive industrial products play an important role because they incorporate working surfaces. The machining of them is crucial; the accuracy, surface quality and lifetime have to be ensured. In this paper the tribological properties of hard-turned surfaces are characterized and analyzed based on 3D and 2D surface roughness parameters. Functional parameters that provide quantitative information about the wear resistance and fluid retention of the machined surfaces were studied. The aim of the study was to summarize the relevant roughness parameters in terms of the functionality of the surfaces and to collect experimental results for their application.
