Characterization of the Bendability of Press‐Hardened 22MnB5 Steel
November 03, 2017
Robo-Met.3D® was used to analyze the surface morphology of press‐hardened 22MnB5 steel in order to quantify the surface roughening of the outer bend surface. The three-dimensional image analysis was done with the Avizo 6 software. Samples for 3D surface visualization were polished with a 3micron diamond suspension. The average layer thickness was approximately 0.5micron. The surface roughening was measured on a 130micronx310micron area.
