Abstract

White layers 0.29 and 2.5 μm thick were formed on EN24 steel by centreless grinding and the running-in behaviour of the white layers with a load of 1.4 kgf against a dry nitrided wheel with a surface speed of 40 mm s-1 has been measured using a Talysurf and a precision relocation technique and the worn surface examined using scanning electron microscopy. The white layers increased the resistance of the steel to wear. The mechanism of wear was by abrasion and the results are shown to follow closely a simple truncation model. The implications of the present results for machining components are briefly discussed.
