Wearing has a direct influence on the efficiency, finishing and quality of products. Therefore, this is a critical point, when considered the aspects of tool components recovery, occurrences of tool fractures and undesirable production line stops. Moreover, the industry production growing speeds push the search for a higher efficiency level of manufacturing. One of the main causes of wearing is the friction between contact surfaces by relative sliding in general, with some exceptions as for braking, the wear coefficient and pressure must be as low as possible to reduce wearing. The aim of this paper is to find wear behaviour of bare SAE 4140 steel material. This work involves Chemical Composition testing of substrate steel material to get the exact composition of SAE 4140 steel and it is used for wear as well as fatigue testing. This paperwork also involves wear test on Pin-on-Disc set up. The study uses ANSYS WORKBENCH-12 software to derive the finite element model of the standard specimen. Based on this model, Von-misses stresses & displacements are found.
