face milling, surface roughness, distribution of roughness, direction-dependent characterization of topography


When surfaces with anisotropic texture are moved in different directions related to their assembled counterpart during operation, the friction conditions change, as they are determined by the lay of the topographies. In the article, contributing to the exploration of this characteristic, we analyze the inhomogeneity of the topography on a face milled plane surface with a symmetrical setting in sections at an angle of 30° or 60° to the feed direction. Roughness profiles are recorded at 13 points located equidistantly from each other in each measurement plane, and the degree and distribution of the roughness deviations are determined on the surface.
