The Effect of Pits on the Curvature Cup: For Reducing Friction in Soft on Hard Sliding Contact
The purpose of this feasibility study is to elucidate the effect of surface modification on the curvature cup made of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) against metal ball bearing was investigated. In the tribology soft on hard (SoH), the pits embedded on the curvature cup have shown potential for reducing friction in curvature structure. A modified four ball machine as a hard-on-soft screening machine has been used to evaluate the friction on the curvature cup sample with an inner diameter of 12.8 mm. This study revealed that the treated curvature cup with pit in lubricated of palm oil optimizes the rate of frictional and allows for a stable of soft on hard sliding contact.
