STUDY OF QUALITY OF NINE ALUMINIUM ALLOYS SURFACES CREATED USING ABRASIVE WATERJET

Abstract

The article focuses on the normalized method of measurement and evaluation of a surface texture created using the abrasive waterjet. It detects selected amplitude parameters of a roughness profile providing a form of a quantified description of properties of a surface topography. It studies the change in quality of machined surfaces created by the abrasive waterjet in nine selected materials of aluminium alloys when changing the traverse speed. Studied samples were measured by an optical profilometer MicroProf FRT and further analyzed with the Scanning Probe Image Processor software (SPIP). The results of experiments show that the observed amplitude parameters of roughness are influenced by the increasing traverse speed.
