This work presents the results of a study carried out to determine the reciprocating wear behavior and its effect on the process parameters of components manufactured by selective laser sintering (SLS). A standard procedure and specimen had been used in the present study to find the wear behavior. Using Taguchi’s experimental technique, an orthogonal array of modified L9 had been developed. Reciprocating wear testing was carried out and analysis of variance (ANOVA) technique was used to investigate the effect of process parameters and to identify the main process parameter that influences the properties of wear behavior on the SLS components. It has been found that laser power had more influence on wear as compared to other selected process parameters. Micro-structural analysis was also carried out using scanning electron microscope on the wear testing sample.
