Abstract

In order to improve the frictional properties, a self-oil-circulating structure, termed a 3D capillary structure, has been proposed. The 3D capillary structure was manufactured by metal 3D printer, because of its complex micro-structure. The bronze was focused as sliding material. In this study, the oil lubricant supplying function and frictional properties of the 3D capillary structured specimen made of bronze were investigated. Experimental results showed that the 3D capillary structured specimen made of bronze had the oil supplying function and lower frictional property than that made of stainless steel.
