    THE LABORATORY TESTING OF STEEL 20MnCr5

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 12 (2018), Issue 3, pg(s) 132-135

    In this paper the laboratory tests on the selected steel for cementation 20MnCr5 was perfomed. The influence of the contact load resistance to the adhesion wear of high-temperature carbonitrided MnCr steels was analyzed. As a representative example was selected a tribosystem drive/driven gear of reducers in which are expressed high contact loads. For the purposes of these tests, the samples were first high-temperature carbonitrided, and then they are carried to the appropriate chemical and metallographic analysis, control of the surface hardnesses and the resistance to the adhesion wear. The aim of this paper was to observe the representative tribosystem as much possible to define its working parameters in order to determine the optimum conditions for testing the influence of the contact load on resistance to the adhesion wear. The analysis results show that high-temperature carbonitrided steel where the atmosphere of furnace at the beginning of carburizing was enriched with nitrogen, and finally with carbon showed significantly greater resistance to the adhesion wear compared to steel that at the beginning of carburizing had atmosphere of furnace rich in carbon, and finally with nitrogen.

  • INVESTIGATION OF THE TRIBOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STAINLESS STEEL X20Cr13

    Innovations in Discrete Productions, Vol. 4 (2016), Issue 2, pg(s) 39-41

    For the purposes of testing tribological characteristics of the stainless steel X20Cr13 designed for the parts of process industry plants for the production of sunflower oil, test samples were made and heat treatment by improving on different hardnesses was performed. Final machine processing of the samples was performed out by grinding and polishing. This way, the different characteristics of the surface layer and the different surface topography were achieved. The paper presents the results of the impact of the hardness on characteristics of the stainless steel X20Cr13. By examining the resistance to the adhesion wear it was concluded that the higher wear was on the test samples which have been in the raw condition and who were also loaded by higher forces. Therefore, the quality of the surface wear greatly affects the surface roughness and the coefficient of friction.
