Surface texturing has been applied to diverse mechanical mechanisms to improve performances in various fields related to friction, lubrication and resistance to wear. The present study investigates the application of mask in prouducing circular craters during the abrasive waterjet surface texturing of stainless steel. In the experiment, the mask with parallel slots was placed above the surface of the specimen and the waterjet nozzle moved along the mask. The effect of feed rate was studied in terms of crater characteristic produced. The results showed that with increasing traverse rate a shallower crater depth was produced. Increasing the traverse rate also produced a narrower circular crater with improved inner surface roughness. It can be concluded that a proper selection of parameters can produce a shallow and small circular crater during the waterjet surface texturing process.
