On the Role of Contact and System Stiffness in the Measurement of Principal Variables in Fretting Wear Testing
(MDPI AG, 2020)
In this work, the role of the contact stiffness in the measurement of principal variables in fretting wear tests is assessed. Several fretting wear tribometers found in the literature, including one developed by the authors, ...
Surface integrity of additive manufacturing parts: a comparison between optical topography measuring techniques
(Elsevier B.V., 2020)
Additive Manufacturing (AM) presents significant industry-specific advantages allowing the creation of complex geometries and internal features that cannot be produced using conventional manufacturing processes. However, ...
Towards the automation of the die spotting process: Contact blue pattern decryption
(Elsevier Ltd., 2020)
Automotive die spotting is one of the most complex and least standardized processes in the tool making process. A spotting expert identifies local contact areas through a blue-paste pattern and the die/sheet contact is ...
