Laser Treatment of Cast Iron Engine Cylinder Bore with Nanosecond Laser Pulses

Abstract:

Article Preview

The environmental and polluting materials emission standards in Europe are going to be always stricter, so in order to keep up with them, one of the largest European automotive manufacturer performs a laser treatment on the cylinder bores of their internal combustion engines. Due to the laser treatment, the near surface area of the cylinder bore becomes harder and more wear resistant, furthermore, due to the inhomogenity of the pearlitic matrix and graphite lamellae, oil reserving holes are formed. In our present work we investigated the laser treated layer of cast iron cylinder bores with lamellar graphite. Samples prepared with two different lasertypes and different energies were investigated on behalf of metallographic and functional aspects.
