tribological efficiency, tribo-bonding of samples and parts, tribotechnical parameters, contact electrical resistance, surface strength, operational reliability


In this work, a universal tribometer is proposed to study the tribological efficiency of the couplings of samples and parts. The design of the tribometer made it possible to carry out experimental studies in a wide range of force parameters of the load with their smooth change. A set of characteristics and parameters determined on tribometers during the study of couplings of samples according to the "disk-finger" scheme is given: wear intensity, coefficient of friction, temperature in the contact zone, specific work of destruction, specific energy capacity according to the heat index, electrical criterion for evaluating the structural adaptability of tribo couplings. Modes of friction and wear were determined by the characteristics of changes in the contact electrical resistance parameters: run-in, normal friction and wear, volume destruction. The results of the research of tribological efficiency according to the specified characteristics and parameters are given. For a comparative effect, the samples were strengthened by a complex chemical-thermal method, serial technology and boronization . The results made it possible to identify the characteristic zones of run-in regimes, normal friction and wear, and volumetric destruction. They are confirmed by the received electron microfractographies.
