Surface texture analysis of the X5CrNi18-10 steel after cutting with abrasive water jet and photon beam (laser)
The article presents an analysis of the geometric structure of the surface of X5CrNi18‑10 steel sheet after cutting with a abrasive water-jet (AWJ) and a photon beam (laser). Both methods and the workpiece material were also described. Using the laser triangulation method, the cut surface texture was measured by opto-digital microscopy. Additionally, microscopic images of the cut surface were made using the Dino-Lite Edge AM7915MZT microscope by ANMO Electronics Co. The analysis of changes in the value of the Sa parameter for the surface after laser cutting and abrasive water-jet showed that the thickness of the cut material has the most significant influence on the obtained measurement results.
