Surface Integrity Functional Analysis in Hard Turning AISI 8620 Case Hardened Steel through 3D Topographical Measurement
The purpose is to contribute with information on the resulting surface condition from hard turning process of mechanical components manufactured from carburized steel. The surface was examined by parameters obtained from the three-dimensional surface topography obtained with an interferometric laser instrument. The selected roughness parameters analysis intends to have a functional characterization such as bearing capacity, fluid and lubricants retention ability and contact wear resistance. The results obtained from the surface roughness measurement show consistency with other authors’ results, and the technique of hardened material turning is capable of producing surfaces with functionality and quality.
