Abstract:

This paper presents the results of an observation and investigation into the wear of the rotors of an open end spinning machine mating with wool yarn in industrial conditions. The rotors were made of alloys EN AW-2024 (AlCu4Mg1) and EN AW-6082 (AlSi1MgMn) after a process of hard anodic oxidation in industrial conditions. Analysis of the wear process together with the decrease in the oxide layer thickness before and after the operation certifies that such a layer assures at least a two and a half fold increase in wear resistance. The surface topography and microstructure of the surface layer before and after the period of operation were assessed, which allowed us to establish that the wear of the inner surfaces of the rotor in the collecting groove caused by the friction of impurities and yarn on their surfaces is mainly determined by the abrasive wear.
