Abstract

The method of producing molten metal powder according to the European laser sintering system (EOSINT) was used to prepare the experimental material. The used powder metal material was designated EOS Maraging Steel - MS1. It is a steel powder, which is optimized especially for processing in EOSINT M 280 systems. The measurement of tribological characteristics of prepared materials was performed using the standard STN ISO 20808: 2004. The ball-on-disc dry sliding friction and wear experiments have been made on prepared materials in contact with steel ball. For the experiment, there were determined the following conditions: the value of normal load 5 N, the sliding radius 2 mm. Wear testing was carried out at room temperature 25°C using the ball-on-disc technique. Wear behaviour of the prepared material was studied in dry sliding; relative humidity was 26-28%. The normal load of 5 N; and sliding speed of 0.1 m/s was applied. The total sliding distance was 1000 m. The worn surface was analysed by confocal microscope and scanning electron microscope.
