The paper presents the development of a new reciprocating friction measurement test rig. Additionally, laser surface texturing (LST) techniques are introduced and a set of typical experimental results is presented. It is shown that the introduction of textured areas can result in significant reduction in lubricated conjunctional friction of a straight ring segment-to-a flat substrate.
