Abstract

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to make people aware of the increase usage of laser system in surface texturing process. Design/methodology/approach - As it is a brief review paper, no particular method was used. Findings - It has been found that most of the surface texturing methods used mas laser beam machining using Nd:YAG laser. It shows that the realization of the textured surface helps to reduce friction and wear which can increase the life span of a material. Research limitations/implications - Most of the texturing is done on the substrates directly, and few research were conducted on coated surface of the material, which coating is also known as an excellent method to improve tribological properties. Originality/value - The paper shows details on the recent development of surface texturing and its contribution to friction and wear reduction.
