Technical Paper


Hardfacing is the process of depositing metal surface with hard wear-resistant material and is most economical way of increasing wear resistance. Wear of a component is a critical factor influencing the product’s service life; hence, its prediction is therefore an important part of engineering. In the present investigation, pins made of Ni–Cr–Mo and Ni–Cr–Mo–Ti (2 wt%, 3 wt% and 4 wt%) hardfaced on mild steel have been experimentally analysed to investigate the tribological characteristics (wear) for various loading conditions. Design of experiments for wear calculation has been done by using Taguchi method. Finite element analysis is performed on 3D model of pin-on-disc apparatus. This paper is focused on experimental and simulation analysis of a pin-on-disc tribometer. The results from the experimental work and the simulation work are compared. Assessment of influence of parameters shows that applied load largely influences volume loss by wear among selected parameters. The rotational speed influences volume loss moderately. The effect of % Ti reinforcement has been discussed in last segment of this paper.
