Dry Sliding Wear Resistance Investigation of 316l by Induction Hardening Process

Authors(2) :-B Sagar, Dr. Ram Subbaiah

This work investigates on induction hardening process in order to improve the wear behaviour of the material. The hardness of the material is increased up to 200% by this process. Induction hardening process were done to 3 different specimens - 1 minute, 2 minutes, and 3 minutes and named as IH1, IH2, and IH3 respectively. A pin on disc machine is used to conduct wear test, so that wear loss can be determined. The specimens are to be magnified by metallographic test such as optical microscope & scanning electron microscope. The untreated specimen is used to compare with the treated specimen. The best specimen is chosen which determines the life of material & improves the better wear resistance. The hardness of untreated material and treated material were compared.
