Abstract

In many fields of industry, abrasion wear is a dominant wear mechanism that reduces service life of costly machine parts. Therefore, the study upon wear resistance against abrasion actions is often required. In the report, the research done including the theoretically and laboratorial) on “An Investigation Into Abrasive Resistance of Aluminum 6063, Stainless Steel 316, And Mild Steel Using Taber Linear Abraser And Taber Rotary Abraser” is been discussed. The objective of this project is to perform abrasive resistance testing using Taber Linear Abraser Model 5750 and Taber Rotary Platform Abraser Model 5131 on Aluminum 6063, Stainless Steel 316, and Mild Steel. The samples are used to investigate their materials behavior on abrasive wear and relate them to the materials properties in term of wear resistance under the selected test conditions. In additions, the laboratory testing also includes the study on surface roughness, hardness, and the wear surface micrograph using optical microscope. Results are compiled and analyzed to further understand the wear characteristic of the materials. The methodology of the study is described in a flow chart which shows steps of data collection, data analysis, ranking of the metallic materials and the conclusion. As the testing has been done, it can be seen that the result of abrasive wear resistivity, surface profile and hardness change are influenced by the hardness of a material. Stainless Steel 316 seems to have the highest abrasive resistivity which is 28.83 Taber wear Index compared Aluminum 6063 as 126.49 and Mild Steel as 78.23 for two body abrasion testing using Taber Rotary Abraser. The project outcome may actually facilitate the manufacturer to find the suitable metals that can resist the abrasion wear effects. As the abrasion resistance is being fully investigated, the quality and performance of the machinery equipments especially the moving parts will be massively improved.
