Investigate wear performance of coated metal components after submission to abrasive conditions
Using different in-house tools, initial friction tests were carried out on the coated metal components. 3D-roughness measurements were used to compare wear performance.
- Indicate smoothness of selected areas
- determine presence of galling and scuffing
- measure component out-of-roundness
Performance between different coated parts was established as relative performance ranking.
