Torsional strength testing of machine elements manufacture
Polimery 2018, No 11-12, 830
In this article the research related to the scope increase of incremental technology in machine industry is presented. Those technologies were used for the manufacture of components from polymeric materials with torque loaded such as: shafts, clutches of gear hubs and other elements of the propulsion system in which torque is transferred. To analyze the properties of the manufactured elements the original testing stand was designed and a series of preliminary torsional strength tests of the gear shaft fittings obtained using additive techniques have been carried out. On the basis of the obtained results it was stated that there is a clear influence of the printing plane in the applied incremental technologies [SLS (selective laser sintering) and FFF(fused filament fabrication)] on the torsion resistance of the obtained elements. The properties of the shafts also depend on the type of polymeric materials which they were made of.
