Experimental Study of the Correlation the Surface Roughness 2D and 3D in the Honing Process of the Steel Cylinder


Objectives: This research proposes the feasibility of working on surfaces obtained by honing with 2D roughness parameters, as the 3D roughness measurement commonly used in the industry requires many hours of measurement time. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this article, we study the values of surface roughness in two dimensions and three dimensions measured inside cylinders, machined by honing in industrial honing machines. Hardness has been measured with a contact probe roughness meter, as this type of instrument is widely used in academic and especially industrial applications and is standardized in international standards such as ISO 3274 or ASME B46.1. Findings: It is concluded that due to the excellent association obtained, it is sufficient to work with adjustments in two dimensions to characterize the surface, since the roughness in three dimensions takes a long time to be measured with a contact roughness meter like the one used in this investigation, so 2D parameters can be used because due to their normal behavior, they offer competitive advantages due to their ease of determination and require shorter measurement times. Application/Improvements: Manufacturers of hydraulic cylinders, surface finish of the inner wall of internal combustion engines and all those applications where it is machined with honing.
