Investigations on the Influence of Process Parameters on the Sliding Wear Behavior of Components Produced by Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
This work presents the results of a study carried out to
determine the sliding wear behavior and its effect on the process
parameters of components manufactured by direct metal laser
sintering (DMLS). A standard procedure and specimen had been used
in the present study to find the wear behavior. Using Taguchi-s
experimental technique, an orthogonal array of modified L8 had been
developed. Sliding wear testing using pin-on-disk machine was
carried out and analysis of variance (ANOVA) technique was used to
investigate the effect of process parameters and to identify the main
process parameter that influences the properties of wear behavior on
the DMLS components. It has been found that part orientation, one
of the selected process parameter had more influence on wear as
compared to other selected process parameters.
